Parker: Eagle Copters' reputation continues to soar
from Calgary Herald
Eagle Copters founder Mel O'Reilly was recently on stage at the Louisville Marriott Downtown where he received the prestigious Les Morris Award on behalf of the Twirly Birds organization. Les was in the pilot's seat of the Sikorsky helicopter featured on the June 21, 1943 cover of Life magazine. The test pilot's first six flights covered a total of 25 minutes in the fabric-covered machine.
