Sikorsky
Helicopters

Fairchild was an American aircraft and aerospace manufacturing company based at various times in Farmingdale, New York; Hagerstown, Maryland; and San Antonio, Texas.

On May 23, 1923 the “Sikorsky Aero Engineering Corporation” was founded near Roosevelt Field by Igor Sikorsky, an immigrant to the United States who was born in Kiev. In 1925 the company name was changed to “Sikorsky Manufacturing Company”. In 1929 the company moved to Stratford, Connecticut and it became a part of United Aircraft and Transport Corporation (now United Technologies Corporation) in July of that year.

 

In the United States, Igor Sikorsky originally concentrated on the development of multi-engined landplanes and then amphibious aircraft. In the late 1930s, sales declined and United Aircraft merged his division with Vought Aircraft.[6] He then began work on developing a practical helicopter. After first flying the VS-300 he developed the Sikorsky R-4, the first stable, single-rotor, fully controllable helicopter to enter full-scale production in 1942, upon which most subsequent helicopters were based.
