In 1953, Ceylon acquired its first helicopter (this one) - which preceded the purchase of two Westland-Sikorsky S-51 Dragonfly helicopters for the Royal Ceylon Air Force (RCyAF) in 1955. Prime Minister Sir John Kotelawala and other government officials used this helicopter extensively to travel around the country for official and personal business.
