The Wright Brothers (Wilbur and Orville) successfully completed the first powered flight by a heavier-than-air vehicle in 1903. (see related link)

They are credited with initial success at flight. It was more of a glide than a soar.

On December 17, 1903, Orville&Wilbur Wright are accredited with inventing and building the world's first successful airplane and making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight.

They designed, built and flew the first successful heavier-than-air flying machine.

Although other inventors had created powered and unpowered gliders, brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright are credited with the world's first successful manned flight of a heavier-than-air aircraft. Operators of a bicycle shop in Dayton OH, they made their first flight in the Wright Flyer on December 17, 1903 at the sand dunes of Kitty Hawk, NC. The flight by Orville Wright lasted 12 seconds and covered a distance of 120 feet at 6.8 mph as Wilbur ran alongside.

If you believe the Smithsonian, and I do, Orville was the first one to fly, but both flew the first day, and Orville was the first man to fly forward into the wind in an heavier than air, powered airplane. The Wright brothers together were really first in flight.

Wilbur and Orville Wright invented the first airplane capable of heavier-than-air sustained flight. The first flight was on December 17, 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

Depends on which airplane. Orville and Wilbur Wright are credited with building the first heavier than air powered airplane, in 1903.

Wilbur Wright was born in Millville, Indiana and moved around a bit when he was growing up. His adult years where he and his brother Orville worked on their invention of the first controlled, powered, heavier than air, aircraft were spent in Dayton, Ohio.

The first powered, manned aircraft was called the Wright Flyer. It was built by Wilbur and Orville Wright and first flew on December 17, 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.The name of the first heavier-than-aircraft was the 1903 Wright Flyer. The plane was designed and built by Orville and Wilbur Wright. The engine was designed and built by Charles E. Taylor. The aircraft is on display in the Smithsonian Museum of Flight in Washington DC.

Orville and Wilbur Wright invented the Wright Flyer in 1903. They built the first heavier than air, aircraft that carried a person. A mechanic, Charles Taylor, built the engine that powered the 1903 Wright Flyer.

The world's first successful airplane with a controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight on Dec 17, 1903.

The Wright Brothers (Orville and Wilbur) designed and built the first heavier than air powered craft. Charles Taylor, a mechanic, designed and built the engine that powered the airplane.

Orville and Wilbur Wright, more well-known as the Wright Brothers, were American inventors, credited with inventing the first successful airplane. Their first patent, however, claimed the invention of an aerodynamic control system for an aircraft, rather than the aircraft itself.

Orville and Wilbur Wright were the first of many to sustain flight on a heavier-than-air machine. They were the first ones to accomplish such an innovation. The announcement of the first flight ignited the world's passion for flying. The U.S Army signed a contract with the Wright Brothers' in 1908.

That depends on your definition of pilot.If you mean pilot of a sucessfull fixed wing flight, than Orville Wright was the first.The Wright brothers, Orville (August 19, 1871 - January 30, 1948) and Wilbur (April 16, 1867 - May 30, 1912) were the first pilots as they were the ones to built the first aircraftWright brothers, Orville (August 19, 1871 - January 30, 1948) and Wilbur (April 16, 1867 - May 30, 1912), were two Americanswho were credited with the inventing and the building the world\'s first successful airplane and then making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight.

Planes were not discovered ( to be "discovered" something has to all ready exist). They were invented. Orville and Wilbur Wright are given the credit for the first flight in an heavier than air machine in 1903 at Kitty Hawk, NC.

The first plane to fly over land was co-invented by brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright, better known as 'The Wright Brothers'. I'm afraid I can't recall the exact date of the first flight but I do recall their first flight to last more than 5 minutes occured in 1904.

A number of people had built gliders; they could jump from a hill and fly down, but it wasn't "powered" flight. Orville and Wilbur Wright built the first heavier-than-air craft that could take off under its own power.

Orville Redenbacher had one brother, Karl Conrad Redenbacher, who was seven-years older than Orville. Orville Redenbacher was born in Brazil, Indiana in 1907. He began growing popcorn as a 4-H project, when he was a young boy.

They are the Wright Brothers. They invented and demonstrated the first successful airplane. On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered, controlled flight in a heavier than air machine at Kitty Hawk, NC that travelled 120 feet. Just 66 years later, the first man landed on the moon.
