Question :
Who was the first person to fly a plane? Logan
Answer :
Hi Logan,

Most historians recognize Wilbur Wright as the first person to fly a powered airplane on December 17, 1903. There were others who flew balloons and gliders before that, but Wilbur and his brother, Orville, are considered the first pilots of a heavier-than-air craft.

Take care,
