California Aero Technical Institute XBK-1


Design study for a light autogyro conducted by students of the California Aero Technical Institute, Glendale. It was based on an example of the Focke-Achgelis Fa 330 that was loaned to the university. It was to be powered by a 40 hp McCullough engine. The project was eventually abandoned in 1949 due to lack of student interest.
