In this paper a brief overview of the human powered flight will be given at the beginning. The power demand of the most successful human powered fixed wing aircraft will be shown in order to point out the available power problems concerning the design of the rotary wing aircraft. The human ability to perform physical work and therein involved metabolic mechanisms will be shown with their limitations and problems in the accessibility for reliable human power expectations. Furthermore it is not possible to predict the duration of the increased power setting following the constant performance duration. The presentation of analytical calculation method of simplified helicoid will serve as an introduction to the main problem of human powered helicopters – the limited human power source. The invalidity of the common in ground effect models for the purpose of power demand estimation and modest success of realized human powered helicopter designs lead to the alternative approach – the wing in ground effect – as the most promising idea.
