OriginEdit

Igor Ivanovich Sikorsky (1889 - 1972) was a Russian-American aviation pioneer in both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. His first success came with the second aircraft of his design, the S-2. Continuing with the success the S-5 won him national recognition and his S-6-A received the highest award at the 1912 Moscow Aviation Exhibition. In 1939 he designed and flew the Vought-Sikorsky VS-300, the first viable American helicopter, whose rotor configuration being used by most helicopters today. Finally he modified the design to the Sikorsky R-4, which became the first mass-produced helicopter in 1942.
