History behind our name
The first fixed-wing aircraft

The 14-bis (Quatorze-bis), also known as Oiseau de proie (French for “bird of prey”), was a pioneer-era canard biplane designed and built by Brazilian inventor Alberto Santos Dumont on 23 October 1906, in Paris, France, it performed the first officially witnessed unaided takeoff and flight by an heavier-than-air aircraft.

Controversy exists between supporters of Santos Dumont and the Wright Brothers whether the Wright 1903 Flyer 1 or the 14-Bis was the first true airplane.

The 1903 Wright Flyer I used a launch rail and undercarriage skids. After 1903 the Wrights added a catapult to assist the takeoff of later versions of their airplanes. The Santos-Dumont 14-bis used wheels and no catapult.
