My sister and I got a ride in a Kaman K-240 at the Lazy 8 Ranch resort in Pauma Valley CA in about 1959/1960. I think we were 7 and 9 years old. I am wondering if this was the same helicopter your mother soloed in SD in 1958? Our pilot was a middle aged man.

My mother, Doris Prario, was the first woman to fly the K-240, soloing Fri, 13 June 1958 after 10 hours of instruction in San Diego, CA. The event was later documented by the San Diego Union-Tribune, 5 Oct 1958 edition.

I owned, flew (most briefly!) and personally restored the Kaman HTK-1 on display at Tillamook. It has a Lycoming O-540, 240 hp engine on it...from the factory. I owned the last 3 of the 29 manufactured. I have extensive photos--the museum wanted none of them.

Yesterday I was looking at a Kaman HTK-1 at the Tillamook Aviation Museum in Oregon and noted that it had a six cylinder engine, not a four. Six is the number noted in other sources of information on the O-435. I'd appreciate anything that anyone might ad. Thank you.

Very nice webpage. I wonder if Microsoft finally incorporated an early years Kaman into their Flightsimulator versions after 2004. Thats the version I fly at present. I spend all my spare time flying the Robinson R22 Beta II in simulation but I sure would like to fly a Kaman to get a feel for the handling of a twin rotor helicopter.
