  El Departamento Aeronáutico (PAR) del Instituto Brasileño de Investigaciones y Desarrollo (I.P.D.) construyó tres prototipos de un pequeño helicóptero biplaza, diseñado por el profesor Heinrich Focke. Designado I.P.D. BF-1 Beija Flor (colibrí) efectúo su primer vuelo el mes de enero de 1959 pero finamente no llego a fabricarse. Tenia un aspecto un tanto extraño debido a que el motor un Continental  E225 de 225 Hp. de 6 cilindros, estaba instalado en la proa, desde donde accionaba el rotor principal tripala mediante un juego de ejes.


 The BF-1 Beija Flor was designed in 1956 by Professor Focke at the Centre Tecnico de Aeronautica at the military research and overhaul centre at Sao Jose dos Campos. A two-seater, the Beija Flor had its 225hp Continental E225 engine fitted in the nose, with a short coupling to the rotor pylon which was mounted centrally in front of the crew. An open structure tubular steel tail boom carried a pair of tail surfaces and a small tail rotor. The prototype flew on 1 January 1959, and went through extended flight testing until it was damaged in an accident. It is thought that further work on the Beija Flor was then abandoned.
