1930-2022

Frank Robinson, Founder of Robinson Helicopter

Robinson was born in Carbonado, Washington, on Jan. 14, 1930. The youngest of four children, he grew up during the Great Depression on Whidbey Island. At the age of nine, he saw a picture in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer of Igor Sikorsky hovering his VS-300 prototype helicopter. The idea that a machine could remain stationary in the air fascinated Robinson and set the course for his life’s work.
