1965 Jaycopter found

Recommended Posts

Hi Randy, 

I was wondering if you could put me in touch with Darryl or Ted Jacobs (see thread from Dec 21 2006).

We have located a mini Jaycopter that was located at Gander Airport, but it is in need of repairs.

We would like to restore it to put in our local Aviation Museum and I thought May Ted or Darryl might be able to offer some advice. 

Thanks so much

Catherine

 

 

Now I got an e-mail from a Ted Jacobs. Obviously my inquiry was passed along from Darryl. Not sure who Ted is, but maybe Darryl's dad.

Yes there is one Baby Jay here in the Aviation Museum here in Edmonton.

 

The other 22 were scrapped. The Minicopter was smaller and more acceptable to Malls etc.

 

There also is a Minicopter at the Museum and I have one also.

 

Best regards

Ted

Ted confirmed that he is Darryl's dad.  Ted's Uncle Pete invented the Jaycopter.  An interesting note from Ted:

The red 8-passenger Jaycopter was sold and I believe eventually scrapped.
The yellow 16 passenger is all in pieces,  near Edmonton at the Remold's Museum in Wetaskewin,  AB.

Keep in mind that these were email addresses that were accurate in December 2006.  Good luck!
