Celebrating the Legacy of the British Aviator, Engineer, and Inventor Ken Wallis DSO MBE

Ken Wallis DSO MBE (1916-2013) was a British aviator, engineer, and inventor who is best known for his work designing and building autogyros. Wallis began his aviation career as a pilot in the Royal Air Force during World War II, where he flew a variety of aircraft including bombers, fighters, and transport planes. After the war, he became interested in autogyros, which are small, lightweight aircraft that use a rotor to generate lift.

Wallis designed and built a series of autogyros throughout his career, many of which set records for speed, altitude, and distance. He is perhaps best known for his work on the ‘Little Nellie’ gyrocopter, which was famously used in the James Bond film ‘You Only Live Twice’. Wallis built the gyrocopter specifically for the film, and it went on to become one of the most iconic aircraft in cinema history.

In addition to his work on autogyros, Wallis also invented a number of other devices and technologies throughout his career. He was awarded numerous honours and awards for his contributions to aviation and engineering, including an OBE from the Royal Family. Wallis continued to fly and invent well into his 90s, and his legacy continues to inspire aviators and engineers around the world today.
