Raoul Pateras-Pescara was an engineer and inventor who traveled America and Europe to develop new technologies.

Raoul started out with Gustave Eiffel in the testing of an underwater torpedo in a wind tunnel. He later furthered his career in the making of a multi-bladed helicopter. In it, he was able to break the world record for altitude reached: 1,160 meters (nearly 3/4 miles) in the air. Later in his career, Raoul began designing auto parts, which he would continue to do until his death in 1966.
