of a geophysicist's 'other' work and how it inspired others

Copyright European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers
This paper describes J.G. Hagedoorn's work on 'ultimate sailing'– the
combination of a manned kite and a water kite called a Hapa,
constituting a minimal sailing system – and the way others have taken up
his challenge to sail while suspended from a kite. Hagedoorn's goal has
not been entirely achieved, but 'near' and partial solutions have been
reached. Kite-Hapa-sailing continues to pose a 'Holy Grail' type
challenge to many kite-sailors."

helical wave mechanics
See also rogue wind helicity, wind helicity, turbulence,
Air that has robust helicities occurring. Thermic conditions, obstacles,
industry, vehicles, machines, other aircraft, birds, trees, wind
turbines, kites, ground formations, buildings, combinations of
things, etc. are among some of the sources resulting in helicities
that sum to active air.
Active air is a normal characteristic of the atmosphere. Natural
creatures have evolved to survive unique levels of strength of active
air and to avoid the levels that exceed that strength. Humans,
relatively new to flight, continue to struggle to recognize what levels
of strength not to exceed with their various flying devices.
A property of a moving fluid which represents the potential for helical
flow (i.e. flow which follows the pattern of a corkscrew) to evolve.
Helicity is proportional to the strength of the flow, the amount of
vertical wind shear, and the amount of turning in the flow (i.e.
vorticity). Atmospheric helicity is computed from the vertical wind
profile in the lower part of the atmosphere (usually from the surface up
to 3 km), and is measured relative to storm motion. Higher values of
helicity (generally, around 150 m2/s2 or more) favor the development of
mid-level rotation (i.e. mesocyclones). Extreme values can exceed 600

- helicopter principle
- Sometimes a misapplication of the term "helicopter" onto
non-helicopters as gyrokites, autogyros, or gyrocopters which do not
power-drive the lifting blades. Hence, some "helicopter kites" are
not helicopters at all.
- Helicopters are employed in some hybrid AWES and in more than one
way. One major way is used by Makani Power in a hybrid kite system; they
use helicoptering using powered blades for launching their hybrid AWES;
then once the power-blade launch is effected into adequate upper winds,
then the power may be shut off while kiting of a rigid macro wing is
accomplished when in such kiting the blades that were used for
helicoptering become wing-mounted autorotating blades in a HAWT attitude
not giving lift to the masses lofted but giving rotation to the shafts
of hub-mounted electric generators. During that electric-generation
phase the kiting is not gyrokiting as the lifting is done by a macro
wing permitting the turbine blades to stay oriented at neutral kiting
fully dedicated to turning the electric generator shaft. In the landing
procedure, the hybrid kite system again converts to a helicopter
mode using power to drive the rotating blades as propellers of the
helicopter. The Makani system is very different from the Sky WindPower
systems; SWP helicopters to altitude but then uses the same rotating
blades in a gyrokiting fashion while mining some of the autorotation for
lift of masses and some for driving hub-based electric generators. The
Makani in generation is a flygen kiteplane with HAWT blades; the SWP is
a flygen gyrokite in generation-of-robust electricity phase; both are
helicopters in launching and landing phase (except if the system
operator decides to have the wings enter free gliding mode in which case
the Makani depends on macro wing gliding and SWP depends on gyrogliding
