Traian Vuia’s journey
In the early 1900s, Romanian inventor Traian Vuia studies the issue of the first human flight and designs an aircraft, which he calls the “airplane – car”. Vuia presented his design at the Paris Academy of Sciences on February 16, 1903, but it was rejected with the following words ” flight problem with a device that weighs more than air can not be resolved and is only an illusion .”
He starts the construction by himself…
…On March 18, 1906, he has held his first flight attempt. After an acceleration of 50 meters, the machine leaves the ground at a height of one meter, travels a distance of about 12 meters and then lands.
Many newspapers of that time, in France, the U.S. and the UK, write about the one considered to be the first man to fly with a device that weighs more than air, equipped with its own systems for takeoff, landing and propulsion.
