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 of aeronautics.
