Many ages ago, humans first gazed upon the skies and noticed
that it was the domain ruled by a peculiar kind of creatures. The thing that
they all had in common, we noticed, were the things giving them the ability to
elevate themselves, a pair of wings. Our fascination with the ability to fly
has set us on a path of discovery of the scientific principles behind it, and
it fueled our ever growing desire to master that ability ourselves.
That resulted in the birth of a specific branch of science or
art, if you will, dealing with the study, design and manufacturing of air
flight capable machines, and the techniques of operating them called
aeronautics. Aviation is nothing more than putting in practice the principals
