Sikorsky Aircraft is an aerospace company founded in 1925 by Kiev born engineer and
American immigrant, Igor Sikorsky. Today, Sikorsky Aircraft produces several models of rotary
aircraft that fill commercial and military roles both stateside and globally. Additionally, the
United States Presidential Transport Program contract currently belongs to Sikorsky Aircraft. Mr.
Igor Sikorsky founded a company that is now one of the leaders in helicopter design and

programs within Sikorsky Aircraft, of which also operate as separate entities with their own
operations, engineering teams etc. Sales, marketing, and human resources are central

separate sales department.
The Test Laboratory located within Sikorsky Aircraft is a unique organization. The Test
Lab facilitates critical flight safety, stress, and electrical testing on all current flight programs as
