414 ii. Orville Wright, born August 19, 1871 in Dayton, Ohio; died January 30, 1948 in Dayton, Ohio.
Notes for Orville Wright:
American aeronautical engineer who worked with his brother, Orville Wright, to build and fly the first
airplane.
Wilbur, the elder of the two brothers, was born in Millville, Indiana. He was the third of five Wright
children. Their father was a bishop of the United Brethren Church. Wilbur went to high school in Dayton
with his brother Orville. The boys shared an interest in mechanical things and learned as much about
mathematics and engineering as they could. Wilbur left high school before finishing his courses, and neither
brother formally graduated. After leaving school, the brothers made several attempts at editing and printing
small local newspapers. In 1892 they formed the Wright Cycle Company. For the next ten years they
designed, built, and sold bicycles.
The Wright brothers must have been aware of the possibility of powered flight and some of the efforts being
made toward that end. The work of German aeronautical pioneer Otto Lilienthal in the 1890s inspired the
Wrights to pursue their own glider and airplane designs. Lilienthal died in a glider crash in 1896, convincing
Wilbur that the stability of the design and the skill of the pilot were as important as getting an airplane into
the air.
The Wright brothers concentrated on developing techniques to stabilize and provide directional control for
their gliders from 1896 to 1899. In August 1899 they flew a kite with a wingspan of about 1.5 m (5 ft). The
kite incorporated controls that could twist the ends of the wings. This wing-warping technique provided
stability and directional control and was the forerunner of the idea of ailerons. Ailerons are flaps on the
trailing edges of modern airplane wings that move independently of the wings to provide stability and
steering controls. See Airplane: Control Components.
In 1900 the Wrights built a larger kite with a 5-m (17-ft) wingspan that could carry a pilot. They decided to
41 March 24, 2004
begin their test flights near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, because the steady winds provided power for their
flights and the sandy banks made crashing safer for machines and pilots. The kite flew well and even carried
Wilbur for a few seconds of piloted flight.
In July 1901 they returned to Kitty Hawk and built a wooden glider that had sledlike runners. They worked
at Kill Devil Hills, where there were large sand dunes over which the runners could glide. Their new
machine was longer than the previous model and its wings were arched differently. It also had a handoperated
elevator—a flap on the horizontal stabilizer on the tail that could control up-and-down movement.
The brothers again achieved encouraging results, particularly after they experimented with other wing arches.
However, there were still problems with stability and control.
During late 1901 and early 1902 the Wrights built a small wind tunnel and tested various wing designs and
wing arches. In the course of these tests, they compiled the first accurate tables of lift and drag, the important
parameters that govern flight and stability. They constructed a new glider with a 10 m (32 ft) wingspan in
mid-1902. At first the glider had two vertical fins mounted behind the wings. The brothers still found it
difficult to turn with this design, so they transformed the double fin to a single moveable rudder at the rear of
the glider. This configuration proved so successful that they decided to attempt powered flight the following
summer.
During late 1902 and early 1903 they searched in vain for a suitable engine for their craft and for knowledge
of propeller design. No existing engines that provided the power required were light enough to be practical
to carry aboard an airplane. They eventually constructed their own 9-kilowatt (12-horsepower) motor and
made their own propeller, which moved air very efficiently. After some initial trouble with the propeller
shafts, the first Wright Biplane took to the air and made a successful flight on December 17, 1903, at Kill
Devil Hills near Kitty Hawk. The airplane had a wingspan of 12 m (40 ft) and weighed 340 kg (750 lb) with
the pilot. The two brothers took turns flying the plane. Wilbur, in the last of the flights, stayed in the air for
59 seconds and traveled 260 m (852 ft) at speeds a little under 16 km/h (10 mph).
The following year the Wrights replaced the engine with a more powerful 12-kilowatt (16-horsepower)
engine and separated the rudder controls from the controls that changed the shape of the wing. They tested
their new model in their hometown of Dayton, learning to make longer flights and tighter turns.
In 1905 the Wrights were sufficiently confident of their design to offer it to the United States War
Department. The following year they patented their control system, including the elevator, rudder, and wingwarping
controls. Although they spent time patenting and finding markets for their machines during the next
few years, they did not feel sufficiently confident to exhibit their airplanes publicly until 1908. That year
Wilbur demonstrated the plane in France, while Orville flew in the United States. In 1909 Wilbur flew in
Italy and Orville in Berlin, Germany. The airplanes were now sufficiently well controlled and stable enough
to allow Wilbur to make a flight of 32 km (20 miles) in the United States.
During the next few years the brothers and their Wright Company continued building airplanes, but their
competitors gained ground. In 1912 Wilbur died in Dayton, Ohio, of typhoid fever. By 1918 the Wrights’
patents were under pressure.
