Igor Sikorsky helicopters and

Igor Sikorsky was born on May 25 (6 June) 1889 in Kyiv and was the fifth child of a doctor of medicine, professor University. St. Vladimir Ivan Sikorsky (about Beilis case shall not speak -Forward 25 fragments of life aircraft manufacturer, to remind only of mothers with medical education in those years (:)
Igor studied at 1st Kiev Gymnasium, soon entered the Naval Cadet Corps in St. Petersburg - not over thereof, Sikorsky young leaves to study in Paris, at a technical school Dyuvin de Lano.
A year later he returned and entered the Kiev Polytechnic Institute. However, since it captures the idea to build an aircraft that he forgets about his studies. Engineering degree he received in 1914 «Honoris Causa» in St. Petersburg Polytechnic Institute for the creation of multi-engine airship.
The first working model of bis-2 IMS rose into the air on June 3, 1910. In 1911 was built five Sikorsky aircraft - the C-5, which surpassed the previous size, power and reliability of the power plant. This biplane Sikorski passed the exam for the title of the pilot, set a record four All-Russia, made demonstration flights and passengers even ride. At the beginning of September 1911 there were military maneuvers. Talented young designer to participate and demonstrated the superiority of his plane over the cars of foreign brands. Newspapers and magazines talking about aviamasterskih and flight school student in Kiev, it was called "Russian Farman".
In the same 1911 Sikorsky has developed its sixth aircraft (C-6) with a more powerful engine and a triple cabin. In it he set a world speed record in flight with two passengers. Working to improve the aerodynamic characteristics of this model, the designer built a small aerodynamic laboratory. Upgraded C-6A earned a gold medal Moscow aeronautic exhibition in April 1912 and shortly before the Russian Technical Society Sikorsky awarded the Medal of Honor for "useful work on aeronautics and airplane independent development of its system, which gave excellent results».
Our BG invited by 2 positions - chief engineer establishes naval aviation and for the position of Designer newly formed aeronautic branch of JSC "Russian-Baltic carload factory" (Rbvz). It took two and moved to the next group of employees from Kiev in the capital of the empire.
Then fate namesake and countryman will present the facts as to Kiev, he never returned.






In March of 1913 it was built the world's first four-engine air giant "Russian Vityaz". Further development of the construction of the "Russian Knights" - four-engine "Ilya Muromets". He took off in December of the same in 1913 Rearranged on floats, he remained until 1917 the largest seaplane in the world. On Rbvz the world's first serial production of aircraft giants. In addition to the heavy bombers, Sikorsky created in 1914-1917 years. light fighters, maritime reconnaissance, light reconnaissance fighter, twin-engine fighter-bomber and attack aircraft, ie almost complete fleet of all types used in World War II. In addition, under the leadership of Igor Ivanovich developed and commercially built aircraft engines, equipment and weapons, to build new factories to produce them. Formed a powerful diversified domestic aviation industry. Total in Russia in 1909-1917 years. Sikorski was created two and a half dozen basic models of planes, two helicopters, three snowmobiles and one aircraft engine. Next -Theme our research

S-58 was developed based on model UH-19 "Chikasou." It was built by order of the US Navy; a contract for the creation was signed June 30, 1952, and the first flight took place on March 8, 1954. Since August 1955 began the arrival of new machines in the division. Initially, a helicopter designated as HSS-1 "Sibet" (anti-submarine version) and HUS-1 "Seahorse" (transport option). Later, he enlisted in the US Air Force and the Army, which, like other military helicopters, was named in honor of one of the Indian tribes - "Choktou." In 1962 there was a standardized notation aircraft in the US Armed Forces, and from that point anti-modification designated SH-34 and transportation - CH-34 and Navy UH-34 Army.
H-34 is best known as a military transport helicopter. He took on board 12-16 soldiers or 8 stretchers with the wounded. There are also options for anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue and to transport VIPs. The VIP-modified helicopter used marine units responsible for transporting the President of the United States, and two copies were bought by the Soviet Union on the personal orders of Nikita Khrushchev. [1] After decommissioning, many H-34 used by private firms, airlines and fire protection.
Serial production was completed in 1970; all built about 1800 helicopters of all modifications. The longest lasted 34 H-armed Navy - past the car removed from combat units in 1974
