https://www.sikorskyarchives.com/Civilian_Rescue.php Did you know Igor Sikorsky assembled his first helicopters in his native Kiev? Did you know he wrote a letter where he said that his whole family was purely Ukrainian by descent? There is now a book on Amazon"Ukraine & the United States" with the details. Amazing, but in Kiev Igor Sikorsky set several world speed records on his own planes and on the largest plane of that time and the largest bomber of WW1 – S-22 – he also engineered, he set the world distance record flying from St. Petersburg to Kiev and back.
