The Wright brothers’ first flight

The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur flew the first powered, controlled, heavier-than-air airplane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17 1903. The brothers’ perserverance and innovation are a shining example of the capability of the entrepeneurial mind.

Key to their success was the degree of engineering capability that surpassed the trial and error methods of their contemporares. Discovering that Lilenthal’s lift projections – on which they had based their glider designs for years – were flawed, did not discourage the Wright duo. In fact, it did just the opposite: propelling them to find the correct solution.

Pioneering and ambitious
