DID YOU KNOW?The brothers were interested in planes because of a toy their father brought back for them.

What would you invent?If you were given a chance, what would you invent? Get in a group of 4 and start getting busy. Present your ideas to your classmates.

The Wright Brothers

DID YOU KNOW?Before being involved with the aviation world, the brothers were actually interested in bicycles. In fact, they owned tehir own bicycle shop!

Kitty Hawk Project(The first successful plane)It started with the gliders in 1900. The brothers went to Kitty Hawk to start their gliding experiments. They started by adopting designs from previous aviators. Later, they were able to create their own creation. Wilbur did most the testing in the early stages. They started making more and more progress as they were able to fly even further as the years went by. In 1903, they decided to put power on the plane, and called it Flyer. On December the 17th, the first powered plane flew in the sky by Orville Wright. It was history written in the sky. Later in the coming years, they tried improvising Flyer and created better planes. In 1909, Orville sold a plane to the U.S government for $30, 000
