FlyBoyz would like to recognize and honor Wilbur and Orvile Wright who on this date 111 years ago ushered in modern aviation with their first successful flights of the Wright Flyer!
On the morning of December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright took turns piloting and monitoring their flying machine in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Orville piloted the first flight that lasted just 12 seconds and 120 feet. On the fourth and final flight of the day, Wilbur traveled 852 feet, remaining airborne for 59 seconds. That morning, the brothers became the first people to demonstrate sustained flight of a heavier-than-air machine under the complete control of the pilot.
Happy Flying from FlyBoyz!!
