In 1951, the American Helicopter Society established the Dr. Alexander Klemin Award to honor outstanding achievements in rotary-wing aeronautics. The first recipient of the award was Igor I. Sikorsky, and subsequent winners have included the great names of the helicopter industry, including this year's honoree, Charles H. Kaman. In photo, R. Allen Price, Chairman of the AHS Awards Committee in 1951, presents Mr. Sikorsky with the first Klemin Award.
