THE WRIGHT FLYERS
 – 
Considered the pioneers of aviation
 – 
After several flight, they set the record of thehighest altitude in 1908 -360ft
PROBLEMS OF THE WRIGHT FLYER
 – 
So Unstable
 – 
Structural Problems on Full Scale Aircraft
 – 
Control and Propulsion Problems.
DESIGN EXPLORATION
 – 
Many aircraft were built & Tested during the warperiod
 – 
Monoplanes, Biplanes and Tri planes were used.
 – 
Water cooled engines of 4-12 cylinders were used.
DESIGN REVOLUTION – GOLDEN AGE
 – 
Development accelerated in mid 20’s
 – 
4 increased safety, laws governing licensing of pilots n aircraft were enacted.
 – 
NACA investigated Aerofoils, stability & Control,loads n structures of a/c.
 – 
Millitary sponsored application of technology &generation of new & useful O.S’s.

CONT…..
 – 
A/c evolved from low powered biplanes to sleekhigh powered monoplanes made of aluminum.
 – 
WW 1 experienced pilots were eager to show off their skills
 – 
 This led to Development of Air shows, Air races &Acrobatic stunts….etc
 – 
 These resulted in development of Airframes andEngines.
DESIGN REFINEMENT
 – 
WW 2 led to drastic Increase in Dev. & prod of a/c
 – 
All countries involved in the war stepped up theDev. & Prod. Of 
 – 
A/c.
 – 
Flight based weapon delivery systems
 – 
New Tech. like Radar allowed more coordinated ncontrolled deployment of A/c.
