Sikorsky S-1 / S-2



For the time being Sikorsky decided to enter the field of fixed-wing design and began construction of his first airplane. His S-1 biplane was tested early in 1910, and, although its 15-horsepower engine proved inadequate, a redesigned airframe with a larger engine (S-2) carried him on his first short flight. On 16 June 1910 it flew about 800 ft at 2 to 3 feet altitude. It crashed a few days later after a 49 second flight.
Engine: Anzani, 25 hp
Top speed: 50 mph
