In the last 250 years man has truly got to grips with flying. In 1783 the Montgolfier brothers launched the era of the hot air balloon. Then in the 19th century George Cayley, the ‘father of the aeroplane’ cracked the science of flying as we know it today. The development from there has been truly staggering. Nowadays we fly in planes of all shapes and speeds, helicopters, gliders, paragliders, rockets, and occasionally jetpacks, to name just a few of our incredible inventions.
