A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Aviation Collection - Aviation can be said to include all the various methods of piloting and maneuvering free flying devices above the ground. This dream of actually flying as free as a bird had been experienced for thousands of years before Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first successful powered and controlled flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, December 17, 1903. Robert Bacon, the English philosopher and scientist, made the first recorded proposal for a gas-filled balloon about 1250, and Leonardo da Vinci, the Florentine artist and scientist, published a detailed treatise on human flight in 1505 and developed many detailed designs for flying machines, including the fundamental concept of the helicopter. The discovery of lighter-than-air gas, specifically hydrogen, around 1766, was the key item that led the Motgolfier brothers to develop their successful balloons. They used a large paper bag inflated with hot air for their early flights which reached an altitude of 6000 ft. Soon hydrogen filled rubber envelopes became the standard which lasted until the 1930's when helium was used instead of hydrogen. The internal combustion engine and the jet engine have helped change the field of aviation in ways that few could have predicted. Today we almost take aviation for granted. But for many, the intrigue and appeal is still alive as we watch advances on an almost daily basis. Aviation!
