The Wright Brothers effect on aviation.

Even though Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first airplane was not much to what we see today it had a great impact on aviation from the early 1900’s to the present day. From the Wrights military plane that only reached up to speeds of 42 miles per hours, which seems like nothing compared to what planes do now, but it opened the door for the military to train the first military pilots, which would later create the air force. The wrights invention would go on to change the world in a major way of air travel. Without the Wrights we might have not the advances in flight we have today. The wright brothers played a major role in the 1920’s and the way that flight is now from one man being able to fly and now

The first powered flight that would change the world took place on “ December, 17 1903 “(1920’s aviation) this was the flight that the Wrights are famous for.the flight would inspire more people to design and test their own flying machine. This flight would open the way for the Wrights to advance the aircraft and change designs to carry more people, go faster, fly higher. Without this flight they would not have the ability to improve their design of the aircraft, because they would not have a base to advance on a design that worked. The Wrights continued to make airplanes to sell from their family business. They sold each plane for around $5000 each that was a pretty large sum of money of the time period. Orville became a member of the National Advisory Council Of Aeronautics which would later become NASA during the 1920’s flight would not be the same if it was not for all the advances the Wrights are known for. Orville sold the Wright business after Wilbur passed away from typhoid,Orville not only lost his brother when Wilbur passed he lost his business partner and fellow inventor, not one brother took more fame for creating the airplane they did it together equally. Orville lost hope in creating airplanes, but the he had already sparked the flame for the aerial …show more content…
From them designing the wind tunnel to test how the wind would affect the parts of the aircraft. The the design of the propellers and flight control system which are basically the same design of what is used today it is strange to think that something that old is still used in modern planes.. The ability to manufacture an engine for the aircraft was almost unheard of for the time without their ability to build this engine flight would not be what it is today. The Wrights did not get the fame they deserved in their time period.They challenges they were able to overcome for their time is amazing for the tools they and to work with. The Wright’s had no blueprints to go from, because they were the first to accomplish this mighty task of flight and they were just over shadowed, and never got the appreciation they earned here in the states until after their time. Europe was the main one to approve of the Brother accomplishments with the great task of flight. We have much to admire the Wright brothers for without them the 1920’s and the present would not be the
