How helos were born...

Sergei Sikorsky and the Sikorsky Archives have given us an excellent abbreviated summary of the birth and past/present benefits of developed by his father, Igor. As a navy jet pilot, I found the amount of data just the right length that I wanted to read ...well written...outstanding graphics about each design phase... and outstanding photos of each developmental stage. If you want a quick read about how helicopters arrived on the scene, and if you want an inspirational story about how individual hard work can lead to success, this is the right book for you.

Good photo album of Sikorsky Produces

This book was written by Igor Sikorsky's son (who was also the V.P. of Engineering for a while). It is more of a photo album then a book but it is great. There is a brief write up of each era in his father's work describing the main challenges. There is also a good photo of each aircraft that was built (including experimental aircraft). The caption for each photo explains why the craft was built and its historical significance. I am currently an engineer at Sikorsky and my copy of this book has been circulating around engineering. Everybody enjoys it.

The Sikorsky Legacy

For somebody who cannot even spell SIKORSKY Jack, maybe you should read the book and judge the author for the books content and not his personal life! Man what a jerk some people can be. Get a life!
