Designing single helicopter Adams-Wilson A / W 95 started by British aircraft manufacturers Adams and Wilson at the end of 50-ies of the last century. The main reason for the American engineers set about creating this project was the need to increase the proportion of the use of private aircraft, and in essence, the appearance of the model helicopter Adams-Wilson A / W 95 was only the first step in the gradual promotion of private air rotary-wing craft.
US aircraft manufacturers were well aware of the fact that the helicopter Adams-Wilson A / W 95 should not only be simple in terms of its use, but also quite cheap, as a matter of fact, only this fact has guaranteed the popularity of this class of aircraft. In turn, it carried some limitations in the use of these aircraft, but, in general, did not have any negative trends as the project has had a number of advantages, in particular, we are talking about small dimensions, good handling and high maneuverability.

Initially, the release of the aircraft was conducted in an exceptionally assembled state, which in turn led to some increase in the cost of the project, however, later on, the production was changed over to production of kits for self-assembly, and even later, thanks to the unification of components and assemblies, the future owner, guided by special plans and drawings he could create a helicopter - the only exception is the purchase of the motor.
