Wright Flyer 萊特飛行器

萊特飛行器是航空史上最具代表性的飛機之一,萊特兄弟 1903 年的成功飛行源自已知飛行原理和他們在自己的實驗中想法的結合,他們探討李林塔爾對鳥翼和翼型的研究,以及蘭利的蒸汽動力滑翔機實驗;達文西、沙努特和喬治·凱利爵士這些早期開拓者對萊特兄弟來說同樣重要。 但是,李林塔爾飛行失敗去世的事件對萊特兄弟影響甚巨,他們意識到儘管一些航空問題已被解決,但在控制飛機方面的進展太小。他們自製風洞隧道進行研究,以數百種不同翼弧的翼型完成了初步測試,開發出三軸控制系統。這種用來控制飛機俯仰與偏航的系統沿用至今,並據此製作出了萊特飛行器,也讓它成為第一台可控制、持續動力飛行的有人駕駛動力飛行機。

1903 Wright Flyer

The Wright Flyer is one of the most Iconic aircraft in the history of aviation.
Wilbur and Orville Wright’s Flyer of 1903 was a success because it combined the known principals of flight as well as ideas they discovered during their own experiments. They studied Otto Lilienthal’s research on bird wings and airfoils, Samuel Langley’s experiments with a steam powered glider. Leonardo da Vinci, Octave Chanute and Sir George Cayley were no less important inspirations to the Wrights. But it was the death of Lilienthal in a crash during a windy flight that galvanised the brothers into action. They realised that although some of the problems of aviation had been solved, little progress had been made concerning the control of an aircraft. As a result of their experiments with a shop-built wind tunnel and hundreds of glider tests, a three-axis control system was developed. This led to the construction of the Flyer, which in 1903 became the first heavier-than-air manned craft to achieve, controlled, sustained flight.
