They were recognized for various achievements, including: vertical flight pilot skills, research and development of flight technology, and facilitating international cooperation by creating, testing and delivering search and rescue aircraft to the Chilean Air Force.
“We are proud to be at the forefront of many emerging technologies and we look forward to continuing to develop and advance the future of vertical flight,” said Mike Ambrose, vice president of engineering and technology at Sikorsky.
