Although Avro (A. V. Roe) Aircraft is best known for its fixed wing designs, the company was also involved in autogyros (as the main British outlet for Cierva, see separate topic) and later on in an array of unbuilt VTOL and helicopter type designs. Here are those that have been documented (thanks to hesham for locating the initial documents).NOTE: the images shown next to the descriptions are also clickable in larger format at the end of the post.

Everything looks fine in Firefox.
Just realized I'd misplaced the picture for the Avro 811, placing it next to the Avro 810 text. I've fixed it, and now both types are there and correctly placed.
I'm enclosing below an extra picture of the 810 project (which became known as the Hawker Siddeley HS.810).

So what happened to the Avrocar to get it canned? I know it had some problems during the test flight but I was hoping for specifics........
