The episode highlights Sikorsky moving his company from Queens, New York and the founding of the Sikorsky aircraft plant, currently the state's largest employer.

Pieragostini also talks about Sikorsky's homes and his burial at St. John's cemetery in Stratford.

The episodes air Tuesday nights at 9:30 and repeat Wednesdays at 2 p.m. The entire series will repeat over the next three months.
