In honor of National Aviation Day, August 19, 2021 let’s put our clean hands together for the trailblazing brothers who succeeded in taking their dreams off the ground: Orville and Wilbur Wright. In the year 1903, at 10:35am in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the Wright Flyer took off for the first time with Orville at the controls and Wilbur running alongside. In this moment history was made — the first self-propelled, powered, heavier-than-air aircraft took flight for 12 seconds with a total airspeed of 34 mph.

Fasten your seatbelt, here are fascinating flying facts:

  • At any given hour, there are approximately 61,000 people airborne over the United States.

  • On average in the USA, over two million passengers board over 30,000 flights a day.

  • Pilots and co-pilots eat different meals in case of food poisoning.

  • About one-third of your taste buds are numbed while flying.

  • Since flight was inspired by the observation of birds soaring across the sky, progress was delayed by many attempts to design an aircraft that emulated the beating of a birds’ wings.

  • Although the Wright brothers of America were the first to succeed in flying a powered aircraft, scholars across the world contributed to the invention, including Leonardo da Vinci and Isaac Newton, among many others.
