National Aviation Day: Win Free Flying Lessons With App In The Air

August 19th is a special day for aviation enthusiasts. It’s the official birthday of aviation giant Orville Wright – one half of The Wright Brothers, the American aviation pioneers credited with inventing, building, and flying the world’s first successful motor-operated airplane. The day was officially named ‘National Aviation Day’ by Franklin D Roosevelt in 1939, and the United States, along with frequent flyers and aeronautic lovers from all around the world, have celebrated the development of aviation on this day every year since.
