It Flies

In 1980, the American Helicopter Society created the AHS Sikorsky Prize, to be given to the first human powered helicopter. To win you had to fly at least 60 seconds, reach an altitude of 3 meters, with the center of the aircraft hovering within a 10×10 meter square.

33 years later, the prize has been won.
