Glidden Doman, a pioneer in the helicopter industry, died Monday, June 6, at Hartford Hospital. He was 95 years old and had lived in Ridgefield from 1958 to 1967.
In 1945, Glid Doman founded Doman Helicopters Inc., which produced small helicopters and was headquartered at Danbury Airport. The company, which closed in 1969, had as many as 130 employees. Two Doman helicopters are now on display at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks.
