The first use of a helicopter for the American presidential transport goes back to 1957 when Dwigth D. EISENHOWER travelled in a BELL H-13 Sioux.

Thanks to the helicopter, the time between the Residence and AIR FORCE ONE was reduced to 7 minutes, and successful tests of landings on the White House lawn also reduced the time between the White House and ANDREWS Airport.
