    Frederick William Lanchester LLD, Hon FRAeS, FRS (23 October – 8 March ), was an English polymath and engineer who made important contributions to automotive engineering and to aerodynamics, and co-invented the topic of operations research.. Lanchester became a pioneer British motor-car builder, a hobby which resulted in his developing a successful car company, and is .   I'd been looking at Schneider aircraft the night before in Mr Koutny's book - so I took it down to the library and blew up a peanut size 3-view and off we went. with a box of catapults and a growing mob of kids with gliders who were grabbing catapults so as to do their “test” flying. Since I had looked fairly carefully at the specs.

    In , Williams also constructed the Model 3 (), which appears to have used the same engine, wings and Curtiss engine as the Model 2; however, the aircraft is a conventional tractor biplane. The following year () Williams had constructed a Curtiss-type flying boat (Model 4) in Michigan, which was used by Robert T. Armstrong. Early versions of the B.E.2 entered squadron service with the Royal Flying Corps in ; the type continued to serve throughout the First World was initially used as a front-line reconnaissance aircraft and light bomber; modified as a single-seater it proved effective as a night fighter, destroying several German airships.. By late , the B.E.2 was proving inadequate in defending.

First as aviator, and then as designer, Sopwith has done much useful work in aviation. These are but a few, out of a host who contributed to the development of flying in this country, for, although France may.

For achievements exclusively of women, see Women in aviation. Aviation pioneers are people directly and indirectly responsible for the advancement of flight, including people who worked to achieve manned flight before the invention of aircraft, as well as others who achieved significant "firsts" in aviation after heavier-than-air flight became routine.

Pioneers of aviation have contributed.

During the (at one time almost universal) practice. The use of a rotor for vertical flight has existed since BCE in the form of the bamboo-copter, an ancient Chinese toy. The bamboo-copter is spun by rolling a stick attached to a rotor.

The spinning creates lift, and the toy flies when released. The philosopher Ge Hong's book, the Baopuzi (Master Who Embraces Simplicity), written arounddescribes the apocryphal use of a possible rotor.
