is noted as a pioneer in which form of transport?
We hope to keep the spirit of Igor Sikorsky
alive, the spirit that tackled many seemingly impossible tasks and created our industry as a result.

Sergei Sikorsky, the son of rotorcraft pioneer Igor Sikorsky
, has witnessed more than 70 years of helicopter development and has been involved in many programs at his father's company, Sikorsky Aircraft.
In doing so, he quotes Igor Sikorsky
, father of the modern-day helicopter, who, when referring to the ability of flying machines to take flight, said: "They are just like bumblebees.
EL inventor ruso Igor Sikorsky
, pionero en eL desarrollo de Los helicopteros funcionales, se inspiro en un relato de Julio Verne que leyo cuando era nino--<<Robur el Conquistador>> (1886)--, en el que se describe una enorme nave aerea, el Albatros, capaz de girar lateral y horizontalmente, asi como de darle la vuelta al mundo en tres semanas.
The scientific and engineering challenges are interwoven with the stories of such industry pioneers as Igor Sikorsky
, Frank Piasecki, and Arthur Young.
Initially, Igor Sikorsky
got very little support inside or outside the company for the heavy-lift helicopter concept.
Following the timeline of the Skycrane and its later models and facsimiles as well as the career of its creator, Russian defector and aeronautical genius Igor Sikorsky
, this work will appeal to enthusiasts of aeronautical engineering and commercial and military history.
