Even before the wright brothers took their first flight in 1903, other inventors had made numerous attempts to make like the birds and fly among these earlier efforts were contraptions such as kites, hot air balloons, airships, gliders and other types of aircraft. On december 14, 1903, the wright brothers were ready to test the aircraft they had built with wilbur at the controls, the experiment failed and the plane sustained minor damage after repairing the aircraft, they tried again on december 17. The wright brothers, orville (august 19, 1871 – january 30, 1948) and wilbur (april 16, 1867 – may 30, 1912), were two american aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane.

Efforts to tackle the engineering problems associated with powered flight began well before the wright brothers' famous trials at kitty hawk in 1804 an english baronet, sir george cayley, launched modern aeronautical engineering by studying the behavior of solid surfaces in a fluid stream and flying the first successful winged aircraft of which we have any detailed record.

The wright brothers are famous for being the pioneers of aviation after they achieved the first powered, sustained and controlled airplane flight on dec 17, 1903, in kitty hawk, north carolina they were not the first people to build and fly experimental aircraft, but the brothers, orville and. The aerospace industry as it stands today supplies five basic markets: military aircraft, missiles, space, commercial airliners, and general aviation i want to explore these markets individually as to how they developed, what each one entails, and how each affects our economy.
