Sikorsky, A 100-year legacy of innovation
Pioneering Flight Solutions that Bring People Home Everywhere, Every Time.
Our founder, Igor Sikorsky, came to America inspired with dreams about designing and building aircraft for a nascent industry. 100 years ago, he created the innovation business we now know as Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company. From humble beginnings, he and generations of Sikorsky employees built on those early ideas, creating an entirely new field of aviation with the first practical helicopter and increasingly advanced versions in the decades that followed. This invention, in the capable hands of aircrews around the world, has become a powerful tool for saving lives and performing missions in the direst and most dangerous conditions. Our customers’ missions motivate us to continue innovating and improving our aircraft and how we build them. For 100 years, we’ve been pioneering flight solutions that bring people home everywhere, every time…that mission inspires us every day, and it always will.
