Centennial Year of Flight

__A Century has passed, the World has changed and we have reached for the stars.
That’s where it began…… at Kitty Hawk and that’s what the World of Aviation is set to remember, come the 17th of December 2003…….ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL POWERED FLIGHT.

__The EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA and by extension, its network of International Chapters around the World are all set to remember the two brothers with a ‘can do’ spirit that made these things possible. They were the original ‘Homebuilders,’ a title that EAA members identify with. The Centennial Year of Flight Commission was created by Congressional decree to ensure that the efforts of the Wright Brothers were remembered and honored in suitable fashion. They will be remembered and honored by the Aviation world in very many ways this year.
Leading the celebrations, EAA America will conduct numerous activities, culminating in an actual flight of a completely replicated Wright Flyer built by EAA members authentic in every way, including its fabric cover, which incidentally was traced to its original source….a women’s undergarments manufacturer!!
