The history of the helicopter is the story of a few key individuals that were able to overcome the technical challenges that made vertical flight possible.
Those early pioneers created rotorcraft that would transform, enrich and ultimately save lives.
But they could only have dreamed of the VTOL innovation underway today, that promises to revolutionise aviation even further.
Welcome to Shephard Studio’s series on Revolutions in Vertical Flight, sponsored by our partner Bell.
Over the course of six episodes, we will look at the history of vertical flight, and discover the key individuals and revolutionary moments that created the rotorcraft industry that we know today.
And we will take a look to the future, consider how next-generation rotorcraft will shape the future battlespace, and hear how innovation underway today will enable the urban air mobility of tomorrow.
Revolutions in Vertical Flight is coming soon, wherever you get your podcasts.
