National Aviation Day

Edit!

Official Start 1939

Extra information

Today we celebrate America\'s love of flying, as once proclaimed by President Roosevelt in 1939. It helps simplify and speed up our lives like most great inventions throughout history. So let\'s honor the Wright\'s, because without flight, we\'d never know what being patted down by a big TSA agent would be like!

- Today, August 19 in 1871, is the birthday of Orville Wright - who along with his brother, Wilbur - was the first to fly on December 17, 1903 in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
