Orville and Wilbur Wright were brothers. When they were boys, their father gave them a toy helicopter. They sold and repaired bicycles. But

they wanted to know about flying. They studied aeronautics. They made kites. They wanted to make an airplane. They studied how birds fly.

In 1900, Wilbur and Orville Wright flew a glider at a place called Kitty Hawk. It was the first glider with a pilot. But they wanted to make a better glider. In 1901 they made a bigger glider.

But it often spun out of control. On 17 December 1903 they flew an aeroplane called The Flyer. It had an engine. The first flight on lasted 12 seconds and went 120 feet.

The fourth flight lasted 59 seconds and went 852 feet. Image attributions 1. 2. 3. 4.
