National Aviation Week: Inspiring your Child’s Inner Innovator
Posted on 09.03.2021, Friday

We’ve all learned about Orville and Wilbur Wright, better known as the Wright Brothers. Famous for teaching the World to fly. They conducted their flight experiments in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina and travel changed forever. This is National Aviation Week (week of Orville Wright’s Birthday- August 19) and we believe this is a great opportunity to share aviation history with your children to inspire the innovator within! The power in the story of the Wright Brother’s is these self- taught engineers had an idea and perused their experiments until the first successful flight was achieved December 17, 1903. Their initial concept initially unsuccessful, became the invention that changed the world. Imagine how different travel may be in 2021 if we only traveled by automobile, bike, horse and carriage? The invention of the modern airplane not only made an impact on travel, but it created a need for people to pilot these machines. This is an opportunity to learn about innovators within the innovation. For example, Amelia Earhart in 1932 was the 1st woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean or Bessie Coleman, who was the 1st African American and Native American woman to become a pilot.  To celebrate National Aviation Week, we encourage you to share Aviation History with your family and spark the inner innovator in your children!
