SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT NATIONAL AVIATION DAY

The history of manned flight is only a little over a century old.  Besides air balloons, the only way to fly was to jump off a cliff, but unfortunately you could only purchase a one way ticket.  However, in 1903, Orville Wright piloted an airplane built by himself and his brother Wilbur a distance of 120 feet and Aviation History was made. To commemorate this event and all subsequent events and innovations that have contributed to the improvement of air flight, a National Aviation Day was created.  The first proclamation was by President Roosevelt in 1939, and a proclamation has been made every year since.  The holiday is celebrated on August 19th, the birthday of Orville Wright.
