Though his name is more or less synonymous, at least in the U.S., with helicopters, he also did a lot of pioneering work on fixed-wing planes and he was NOT the inventor of helicopters per se. There were many prior to him.

His claim on the helicopter front was that of industrializing helicopters and doing so in the U.S.

I love that his name ends in ‘sky’. How neat.

Quite the guy.
