Mankind has always been fascinated by the unknown. Many had dreamt to look at the Earth from the bird’s perspective. The first ones to achieve this were Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and marquis François Laurent d’Arlandes who took off the Earth in a hot air balloon constructed by Montgolfier brothers in 1793. In 1903, Wright brothers presented the mankind with the gift of the airplane, thus opening up the aviation era. The dreams to fly in the clouds have come true, and aviation soon became one of the aspects of our lives.
