This novel parachute plane with circular wings was built and was tested in Chicago in 1934. The inventor declared that even a person who had never been off the ground before could easily learn to fly it in 30 minutes.
Instead of the standard wing structure, this plane had a saucer-like disc that was fitted above the fuselage. The disc was gigantic. 2 ailerons were fitted at the rear of the plane’s wing. These ailerons were meant to help the plane land at low speeds. The parachute plane was outfitted with a 110 hp small Warner motor and it could reach the top speed of 135 mph. The novel parachute plane climbed at an angle of 45° and landed at a speed of 25 mph.
The Foolproof Machinemonoplane. The novel parachute plane could carry two passengers. Its small size meant that it could be housed comfortably in a hangar that was no larger than a regular garage. The plane was practically foolproof and stall-proof and could land on just about any field.
The innovative inventor of this extraordinary airplane was Steven P. Nemeth. Before launching his exciting new invention, he used to be an aeronautics instructor at the McCook field.
