Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, CA
History Track
Helicopter Session - 1
Session Co-Chairs: Michael Hirschberg (phone: 571-499-1444, e-mail: [email protected])
Executive Director of the American Helicopter Society; Erasmo Piñero, Jr., (phone: 817280 5588, e-mail: [email protected]), Principal Engineer for Propulsion Analysis, Integration,
and Flight Test at Bell Helicopter Textron; and member of the AIAA V/STOL Systems
Technical Committee
Imperial Beach in the southwest corner of San Diego (the most southwest corner of the
continental United States) has been known as "The Helicopter Capital of the World." In 1917,
the United States Army established Aviation Field on the current site of Navy Outlying Field
Imperial Beach and in 1918, it was renamed in honor of Army Major William Roy Ream, the
first flying surgeon of the American Army and the first flight surgeon killed in an aircraft
accident. In 1951, Ream Field Imperial Beach became home to its first helicopter squadron
when HU-1 moved on board. HS-2 and HS-4 were also commissioned here in 1952. They was
followed by many others, HS-6 and HS-8 in 1956 and HS-10 was formed in 1960. In 1967, the
oldest of the helicopter squadrons, HC-1, commissioned in 1948 at NAS Lakehurst, was divided
into five different squadrons, HC-3, HC-5, HC-7, HAL-3 and HC-1 and brought on board at
Imperial Beach. This long record in military helicopter history makes SciTech 2016 the ideal
forum for this session on the history of vertical takeoff flight.

Aviation (and most of Army Aviation), a center of aviation manufacturing since the 1920s, and

concentrations of aviation museums and research centers in the United States.

Aerospace Archives - 3
Session Chair: Cam Martin, (phone: 661-276-3448, e-mail: [email protected]) NASADryden Flight Research Center’s Director of External Affairs and Government Relations
Many of the West Coast organizations (Boeing, museums, etc) have vast holdings, but have not
been able to make East Coast conferences. This is a great opportunity to recruit these groups to
present papers on the archiving of aviation/space history, to tell about their current holdings, and
about their approach to gathering and preserving this history.

History of Organizations and Institutions - 4
Session Chair: Name and Contact
Position
This is where the history of Companies, Schools, Government Agencies, and other organizations
and institutions can be presented. Across all of these organizations, they are hitting major
milestone anniversaries, and this is their opportunity to present those histories (even recent
companies such as Space X and Bigelow Aerospace).). There are a series of papers that have
been presented on the history of aerospace programs at educational institutions and these papers
have been edited into an AIAA publication. Each year we get one or two additional papers as
the staff update their histories, or as new programs come online.

Centennial Events - 5
Session Chair: Name and Contact
Position
Every year we reach another centennial aviation milestone somewhere. Some of the major ones
we are approaching at the end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 are the Centennial of the NACA
(NASA), Centennial of the National Park Service (the Dayton Aviation Heritage National
Historical Park has a published Centennial Strategy), Centennial of Philippine Aviation, Boeing,
the progenitor of the modern U.S. aerospace and defense industry will mark its centennial in
2016, Aviation Week celebrates its centennial in 2016, the Coast Guard centennial of flight is in
2016, and many military aviation centennials related to the outbreak of World War I.

Regional Histories - 6
Session Chair: Name and Contact
Position
As Tip O’Neal noted for politics, all politics are local. I believe the same is largely true for
history. Every small community across the United States has a local history association. The
same is true on every level above (county, state, and national). Furthermore, each country has an
aerospace history to be told (we have 21 country aviation histories published by the AIAA
[https://www.aiaa.org/Secondary.aspx?id=2910], there are 196 countries in the world today).

General Aviation History - 7
Session Chair: Name and Contact
Position
This session has traditionally been the catch-all for the aviation related papers that do not fit in
any of the other History Session categories. If there are not many general aviation or space
related papers, they may be merged into a single catch-all session called “General Aerospace
History.”

History of Aerospace Communications - 9
Session Chair: Name and Contact
Position
At the 2014 Space Conference, the AIAA Communications Systems Technical Committee
(CMSTC) expressed an interest in co-sponsoring a session on this topic with the History TC and
offered to help recruit papers for it. Furthermore, San Diego is a major center of airborne and
space-based communications with ViaSat, Qualcomm, L-3 Communications, Northrop
Grumman Information Systems Communications Division, and Cubic Corporation all based in
the area. Furthermore, Southern California is a center of CubeSat technology. A session cochair will be recruited from the CMSTC.
