The Helicopter Museum

Collection   >    American


Although American helicopter history is often dominated by the success of Igor Sikorsky and the VS-300 in the 1940s
but the development of the helicopter in the US also owes a lot to other American pioneers:
Arthur Young (Bell Helicopters), Frank Piasecki (tandem rotor development),
Stanley Hiller (Hiller Helicopters) and many more

The Museum has a number of helicopters in the collection that represent these pioneers
as well as a number of development milestone aircraft from the 1950s to the present day
