THE HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF AEROSPACE ENGINEERING
LEONARDO DA VINCIS FLYING MACHINE The first recorded attempt at aero space engineering was by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1488. There is no evidence that he built his flying machine.
1903 POWERED FLIGHT The Wright flyer is the first successful powered aircraft.
THE WRIGHT BROTHERS - PIONEERS OF THE AIR PLANE BUSINESS
1929 The G 38 is the first monoplane in history and can carry 6 tons. Being a mono wing increases lift and decreases drag compared to biplanes this was discovered by Hugo Junkers.
DAWN OF THE JET AGE Bell P-59 Airacomet Messerschmitt me 262
THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR PROPS Gloster MeteorHorten HO 229
WITH A NEW ENGINE COMES NEW ENGINEERING CHALLENGES Rolls-Royce MerlinJunkers Jumo 004
1952 RICHARD WHITCOMB DISCOVERED THE AREA RULE With area rule Without area rule
WHITCOMBS AREA RULE By simply shrinking the center section of the F102A in, it was able to achieve supersonic flight without an engine upgrade.
1958 THE JOB TITLE AEROSPACE ENGINEER FIRST USED

2004 SPACESHIP ONE SpaceShipOne is the first privately owned space plane. A suborbital craft that completed its first spaceflight in 2004. The mother ship was named "White Knight".
