To designate September 14, 1989, the 50th anniversary of the first flight
of the VS-300 helicopter by aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky, as `National
Helicopter Day'.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
August 4 (legislative day, JANUARY 3), 1989
Mr. DODD introduced the following joint resolution; which was read twice
and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
JOINT RESOLUTION
To designate September 14, 1989, the 50th anniversary of the first flight
of the VS-300 helicopter by aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky, as `National
Helicopter Day'.
Whereas on September 14, 1939, the Russian-born aviation pioneer, Igor
Ivanovitch Sikorsky, successfully flew the VS-300 helicopter, the predecessor
of today's modern helicopter;
Whereas the development of the VS-300 led to contracts with the Army Air
Corps to develop an experimental helicopter, the XR-4, which first flew in
January 1942;
Whereas the United States armed forces remain committed to using the helicopter
in many areas of the defense of the United States; and
Whereas the helicopter has demonstrated a unique life-saving and time-saving
capability in the area of civil aviation: Now, therefore, be it
  Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States
  of America in Congress assembled, That September 14, 1989, the 100th
  anniversary year of Igor Sikorsky's birth, and the 50th anniversary of the
  first flight of the VS-300 helicopter by aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky,
  is designated as `National Helicopter Day', and the President is authorized
  and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United
  States to observe the occasion with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
