The father of Flight


         Alberto Santos Dumont (1873-1932) was born in Brazil and educated in Paris. He made his first balloon ascent in 1898 and soon after that began constructing derigible airships. In 1901 he won a Paris air race and international fame.

        Turning to heavier-than-air machines, Santos Dumont built his 14-Bis in 1906, three years after the wright brothers initial flight. His flight was the first anywhere to liftoff the ground under it own power. In 1909, Santos Dumont designed the Demoiselle monoplane, the forerunner of modern light planes.

       In 1910 Santos Dumont fell ill with multiple sclerosis consequently retired from flying. He returned to Brazil in 1916. Ill and despondent over the use of aircraft in warfare, he committed suicide in 1932.
