Publisher: Book News, Inc.
Date: June 2009
Through b&w photos, this volume documents the history of Sikorsky aviation and the career of its founder, Igor I. Sikorsky (1889-1972). It describes his creation of the world's first four-engine airliner, the record-breaking Clipper Ships, with which Pan American Airways explored transpacific and transatlantic airline service, and the development of the helicopter. Photos are mostly from the Sikorsky family archives. Sergei I. Sikorsky, his son, worked in the factory from the age of 16, and later as a helicopter mechanic with the US Coast Guard.
