Back Kharkov Aviation Institute KhAI-24


The KhAI-24 autogyro was built by the Kharkov Aviation Institute in the mid-1960s. Its fuselage resembled that of a conventional light aircraft with a tandem two-seat cabin, twin tail fins and an M-332 engine in the nose. It was fitted with a fixed tricycle undercarriage and a three-blade main rotor. There is no indication that more than the single prototype was ever built.
