Quest for Flight Poster 24x36 Early Air Machines
by Feenixx Publishing.
   Humans have long sought to soar in the sky, just like birds. This informative and visually striking poster shows what it took to accomplish that seemingly impossible goal.
The bottom row shows mans earliest attempts to fly. Moving up the poster, the most important discoveries, inventions and events are presented in chronological order. The great aviation pioneers are honored by a portrait and a brief biography. In the late 1700s, English engineer Sir George Cayley correctly identified the four forces that would affect a flying machine. A century later, Lawrence Hargrave discovered the lift provided by a cambered wing. About that time, Octave Chanute compiled and published the first organized, written collection of aviation research. He shared his knowledge with many aviation pioneers.
    Americans Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first controlled flight of a heavier than air machine on December 17, 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It flew 120 feet in 12 seconds. Their Flyer was very experimental, and it took the Wright brothers three more years to make it reasonably practical. Some of the valuable improvements made by other early aviators are incorporated in the two planes shown above the Flyer.
   All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. It is also a very hard paper that preserves tiny details. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subect. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject.

All posters measure 24" x 36". This standard size fits inexpensive, off the shelf frames if you wish to frame this poster.
