About Ray Prouty
Ray's career began in 1952, when he put his Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Washington to application at Hughes Tool Co.'s Aircraft Division. He worked as a helicopter aerodynamicist at Hughes until 1954, when he moved his talents to Sikorsky Aircraft until 1956. Between 1958 and 1960, Ray was a stability and control specialist at Bell Helicopter, and then group engineer for helicopter aerodynamics at Lockheed Aircraft from 1960 to 1973. From 1973 until his retirement in 1987, Ray was back at Hughes Helicopters (McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Co.)."
Since retiring in 1987, Ray has kept up with his interests by writing, teaching, and consulting about helicopters. Ray has an innate ability to "speak pilot" on complex helicopter engineering aspects.
The seminar will be held at the Greater Cincinnati International Airport – Marriot Hotel. The seminar will run from 8am – 5pm.
