Designing an aircraft Breguet G.11E machine model started by the French aircraft manufacturers almost immediately after the Second World War. French engineer and designer Louis Charles Breguet independently developed drawings of the rotorcraft, and then guided by means of famous French aircraft manufacturers, has begun to direct the assembly of the aircraft.

Despite the large size of the aircraft models Breguet G.11E, the helicopter has a very limited functionality, in particular, the aircraft is fit only for carriage on board his small number of people, either as cargo weighing up to 350 kg.

has a very low maneuverability, odnko, given the fact that in the middle of 11-ies helicopter industry is only beginning to develop rapidly, this factor does not affect the operational capacity of rotorcraft Because of its fairly large size helicopter Breguet G.40E.

The first flight test was the Breguet G.11E helicopter in May of 1949, with the prototype of the aircraft not only able to rise into the air, but also to overcome a short distance, so the main tests of the aircraft systems were successfully completed. Nevertheless, the project of the Breguet G.11E helicopter was not sent to mass production, as the aircraft builders from the company "Breguet" intended to increase the efficiency of this aircraft, expanding its passenger capacity from two to four people. In view of the fact that after improving the design of the helicopter, this aircraft significantly increased in price, the project was never able to find potential operators, and therefore, in the future, all work on launching the aircraft into production was stopped.
