The Airplanes

  • First Glider

    First Glider
    George Cayley designed a glider by himself with a relatively modern design, which had a tail to be able to glide and control the glider.
  • First Flights

    First Flights
    The first unmanned flights were made.
  • George Cayley

    George Cayley
    George Cayley managed to build a successful glider with the capacity to transport passengers, although because it had no engines it could not be a qualified airplane itself.
  • Clément Ader

    Clément Ader
    The first all-letter plane was designed and created by the Frenchman Clément Ader, who is also credited with great advances in telecommunications and the installation of the first telephone line in Europe by himself.
  • First Éole

    The first plane itself was created by Clément Ader he manages to take off and fly 50 meters with himself Éole.
  • Second Éole

    Clément Ader repeats the feat with Plane II which flies 200 meters.
  • Third Éole

    Clément Ader tries again with the Plane III which flies a distance of more than 300 meters. The flight of the Éole was the first self-propelled flight in the history of mankind and is considered as the start date of aviation in Europe.
  • Wright brothers

    According to the Aeronautique International Federation (FAI), the Wright brothers made "the first sustained and controlled flight of an engine-driven aerodyne" for 12 seconds and in which they traveled about 36.5 meters.
  • Pre-established circuit

    The Brazilian Alberto Santos Dumont who was the first man of carrying out a pre-established circuit under the supervision of specialists, journalists, and witnesses, managing to move 60 meters to a height of 3 meters above the ground on 14-Bis, on the outskirts of Paris.
  • Donkey Tin

    the German company Junkers made a prototype of a metal plane. The Junkers J1, better known as "Donkey Tin" which was a milestone in history. From then on, stronger metal alloys started to be integrated into the fuselage airplanes.
  • Douglas Sleeper Transport (DST)

    American Airlines had ordered aircraft that included beds for long-distance night flights, the Douglas Sleeper Transport (DST) which housed 16 beds
  • Douglas DC

    It was the only one that had a retractable gear and was able to land with its wheels inside without damaging the surfaces or the propellers. He marked a before and after in the air sector, operating several routes and weaving the business system we know today.
  • Lockheed Constellation

    The Lockheed Constellation is another one we can't leave behind. With four propellers and piston engines, which was the first plane itself to be named "Air Force One". It enabled the establishment of affordable and comfortable air travel for the masses.
  • De Havilland Comet/Boeing 707

    The first commercial jet in aviation history was the De Havilland Comet. It was capable of flying at 850km/h, with a pressurized cabin. But it would be the American company Boeing who would make by himself the quantum leap to what we now understand by commercial flights with the Boeing 707.
  • Airbus A300

    The Airbus A300 was the first medium-range jet with a wide fuselage and its large cargo capacity allowed it to transport transatlantic shipments, as well as to collaborate with cargo plane flights in covering the Canary Islands and European markets. It made its first medium-range flight in 1972.
  • Wide-bodied aircraft

    Wide-bodied aircraft
    are implemented and create prototypes of new aircraft known as wide-bodied aircraft, this means that a plane covers up to 3 rows of seats and 2 aisles that separate these 3 rows, this was done in order that passengers themselves, have more comfort at the time of flight, this was a great achievement for the aviation industry.
