After initial experiments with self-built wings of the hot air balloon was the first true aircraft were possible with the manned flights. Which can cause hot air, had earlier found some. In 1513 Leonardo da Vinci designed saints from canvas and paper and had them on the occasion of the coronation of Pope Leo X. filled with hot air to rise. 1782 used Tiberius Cavallo maws and paper cylinders for his experiments with hot air. However, the first balloon left the Montgolfier brothers fly. On June 4, 1783, she could show off their balloon publicly with a shell of paper and canvas. Soon followed by a manned flight. Pilâtre de Rozier rose on October 15 with a balloon of the Montgolfier brothers, and again on 21 November with a first passenger.
