The dream of flying had consumed mankind since ancient times.
The ancient Chinese figured out that when rotating the stick, a “thrust” is produced able to propel it for flight, inspiring Hong Ge, a fourth century AD scientist to speak about rotorcrafts at the time.

Goerge Cayley, pioneer of modern aeronautics made a similar prototype which he called “rotary wafts “in 1809, capable of reaching up to 8 meters high, later improving it to reach even 30 meters.

Aeronautics and Aerospace are still are exciting and mind boggling as ever, with many technological advancement aimed towards a more sustainable industry.
Buckle up and join the ride.
