Dr. S. Harry Robertson III
1934 —
Father of Crashworthy Fuel Systems
Dr. S. Harry Robertson, a life-long Arizonan, has made unique contributions to military and commercial aviation. They can be summarized in three words: “They saved lives!” As an Air Force pilot and crash investigator in the 1950s, he developed an abiding interest in reducing aircraft fires and improving crash survivability. Thousands of pilots, crewmen and passengers who might otherwise have died in helicopter accidents are living tribute to Robertson who pioneered crashworthy fuel systems. Robertson Fuel Systems, founded in 1976, remains active in Tempe. DR. Robertson and his wife reside in Phoenix, AZ. February 2012
