Finished scanning in your photos, but want to learn some basic tips on enhancing them? This introductory session will get you started.

Wilton resident and Sikorsky Aircraft's Andrew Driver will provide a short history of how Igor Sikorsky emigrated from Kiev to the Nutmeg State, founded Sikorsky Aircraft, invented the helicopter, and launched an entire industry which today generates over $20 billion in global new helicopter sales each year. He will provide a summary of significant helicopter models the company has produced and then move into current day products and trends in the industry. Andrew will end the presentation with a look into the future and discuss how Sikorsky is leading the paradigm shift the helicopter industry is currently experiencing as a result of technology advances.

Andrew Driver has worked at Sikorsky Aircraft for 29 years.  He spent the first half of his career at Sikorsky in Engineering, during which he led manufacturing engineering efforts for the development of the transmission and rotor head for the S-92 helicopter.  The S-92 helicopter is used mainly for moving offshore oil workers to and from oil rigs, and also for head of state missions.  It is slated to be the next Marine One, and will begin flying the President of the United States in 2020.  Andrew was also a critical member of the team that secured the development contract for the US Marine Corp next generation heavy lift helicopter, the CH-53K King Stallion, which is set to enter service in 2019.   See registration link for more details.
