Seymour Public Library History Progam

Historian & Author John Cilio

Historian & author John Cilio shares fascinating tales spanning 17 decades.  Connecticut provided the global aviation community with critical engines, instruments, technologies, and more.  Did you know that Connecticut's Gustave Whitehead successfully flew a powered airplane in Fairfield on August 14, 1901, beating the Wright brothers by more than two years?  Or that Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Corporation was established in Hartford in 1925 and a few years after that, in 1929, Sikorsky Aircraft Corportation headed by Igor Sikorsky moved to Stratford CT.  Learn more in a fun, fact-filled virtual presentation.  John Cilio is a skilled aviation histrian focused on mid twentieth-century general aviation, military aircraft and the people that made them possible.  Find out more about John on his website: www.vintageflyer.com
