Who accomplished the first fixed-winged heavier-than-air and powered flight?
The 1903 Wright Brothers flight is officially recognized by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), the standard setting and record-keeping international body for aeronautics and astronautics, as "the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight". There is also evidence and witnesses that Richard Pearse successfully flew a homebuilt aeroplane more than 100 metres across a field, over half a year before the Wright Brothers' flight, thus fulfilling the "sustained" and "controlled" requirements; however since he subsequently lost control upon attempting to land and crashed, many do not consider it a valid claim to the record.
They were the first to produce powered flight that was able to carry a human. They are often credited with the invention of powered flight but this was invented by John Stringfellow of Chard, Somerset, England, who produced a steam powered, heavier-than-air plane (yes - steam powered!) a prototype of which he flew for the public at Crystal Palace, London in 1868. The Wright brothers produced the first plane able to carry a human making…
People do things because a concept fascinates them the wright brother were involved in the bicycle industry at the time and had become interested in the concept of powered flight. They thought they had the ability to bring the concept to reality.and managed to do so. they were some of the earliest pioneers of flight and in their lifetime ended up seeing jet passenger travel.
