The Wright Brothers’ story is a classic American tale. A pair of brothers who—with little means—altered the course of history by being the first to fly. This outline of their lives will both educate and fascinate those who take the time to read it.
- Perseverance is a key trait that enabled the Wright Brothers to build a plane that could fly.
- The impossible is possible.
- Solving large problems can produce great status and wealth, even if that is not the primary goal of the achiever.
How did the Wright Brothers become interested in flight?
When Wilbur and Orville were young, their father gave them a small flying toy. It used twin propellers and twisted rubber bands to soar through the air. They named the toy the “bat.” It was that toy which sparked their interest in aviation.
Orville was only in first grade when his teacher, Ida Palmer, found him tinkering with wood at his desk. When she asked him what the wood was for, he responded that he was making a machine that he and his brother would fly someday.
How close were Orville and Wilbur Wright?
The two brothers had a close relationship. They worked together, ate together, lived in the same house together, and kept their money in the same bank account. Some skeptics say the two never married because their brothers, Lorin and Reuchlin, were constantly moving from job to job to make ends meet for their families.
