Raoul Pateras-Pescara was a former designer that traveled America and Europe to develop new technology.
Raoul started out designing with Gustave Eiffel in the testing of an underwater torpedo in a wind tunnel. He later furthered his designing career in the making of a multi-bladed helicopter. In it, he was able to break world records as its altitude reached 1,160 meters (about 2/3 of a mile) in the air. With this great achievement, Raoul finished his helicopter career and began designing auto parts, which he would continue to do until his death in 1966.
