Here is some useful information about Aviation Day

The Wright Brothers became actively interested in flying in 1895. For the first several years they read everything on flying they could obtain, even though most of what was available was theory and not fact.
In August 1899, they built a two-wing kite of 5 ft. span to test their idea of warping wings for lateral control. Based on the success of this kite, they built a glider of 17 ft. span in September 1900 which they tested at KittyhawkNorth Carolina. Although it was usually flown as a kite, several piloted free glides were made. However, it was not completely satisfactory because it often flew poorly and was difficult to control in a gusty wind.

The story of the invention of the airplane is a Puritan fairy tale. It is the story of how two honest, straightforward, hard-working Americans accomplished something fantastic and magical -- creating a craft of stick and fabric that mounted the air like the chariots of the gods, opening the skies to all humankind. Their success came so suddenly and from such an unexpected quarter that their contemporaries could not believe the Wrights had done what they claimed. After all, if prominent scientists and engineers the world over had been confounded in their efforts to invent the airplane, How could two common men from rustic America have succeeded? The Wrights instead of designing and building the whole craft, the two brothers constantly found ways to test individual components and subsystems of their designs.
