Design and development
The EB-1 was a two-seat helicopter with a single four-bladed main rotor and two-bladed anti-torque tail rotor. It had a fixed tricycle landing gear and was powered by a 180 hp (134 kW) Warner pressure cooled piston engine. Bossi and the company had ambitious plans for a family of helicopters but in the end only one was built.
