To conquer the market in the fight against competitors "Sikorsky" in February 1946 built S-51. The history of its creation is very characteristic. With the cancellation at the end of the war, all orders at the firm formed a reserve for at least 35 two-seater s-48 helicopters. There was no hope that the armed forces would acquire them, and the few potential customers were skeptical about the highly specialized military apparatus with a close cabin. At Sikorsky had the idea to use his motor, transmission, screws and other things, and create for them a new fuselage for a larger. This would significantly expand the scope of the machine. The use of ready-made finished parts and components not only reduced the cost and accelerated the development of the helicopter, but also made it very attractive to buyers.
