My brothers, sisters, cousin, who knows a guy that’s a Major General in the Civil Air Patrol says they’re putting a helicopter engine in one of their Wildcats. This is to facilitate short field problems,

I passed along an offer to help in the design and told him that I knew a lot of technically oriented people that would be happy to also help

My suggestion was that they put really big wheels on the back so the driver was tilted forward. That would increase the speed because he would always be going down hill. That would also save money as the cost of JP4 keeps going up.

Feel free to pass along any of your innovative ideas. I’m sure they will be appreciated.
