Our History: The Wright Brothers

Wright Flyer
"If birds can glide for long periods of time, then why can't I? - Orville Wright

On December 17th, 1903, the Wright Brothers made history with the first powered flight at the dunes of Kitty Hawk. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered a distance of 120 feet. The brothers would go on to complete three more successful flights that day with the longest lasting 59 seconds and covering 852 feet. Now that's progress!
