On December 17, 1903, two brothers, Wilbur and Orville Wright, became the first humans to fly a controllable, powered aeroplane. To unravel the mysteries of flight, the Wright brothers built and experimented extensively with model gliders. Gliders are aircraft without motors or a power source. Building and flying gliders helped the Wright brothers learn and understand the importance of weight and balance in aeroplanes.
