On December 17, 1903 with Orville Wright at the controls, Flyer No. 1, became the world’s first, powered and controlled aircraft to successfully carry a man aloft. In just 12 seconds, Wright flew 120 feet at an estimated groundspeed of 6-7 mph. This seminal event and successive designs would propel the Wrights to world fame. To this day, their success has continuously inspired generations of entrepreneurs, designers and aviators around the globe to achieve countless new firsts in aviation.
