Description


Curious about the first person to be born in an airplane, which American president was the first to fly, or who built the world's first helicopter? Answers to these and other aviation-related questions can be found in this fascinating, fact-filled book compiled by Joshua Stoff, Air and Space Curator of the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, New York.
You'll find the answers to questions about virtually all "firsts" in the history of flight, including these puzzlers: Who was the first licensed American woman pilot? Where was America's first airport? Which was the world's first aircraft manufacturing company? Who was the first person killed in a powered aircraft? When was a satellite first repaired in space? . . . and many more
Brimming with names, dates, and events that made aviation history, this handy reference will not only settle arguments between aviation buffs, but will also provide answers for journalists, students, and aerospace executives — and fascinating browsing for the general reader.
