7 The pioneers Abreu de Oliveira (on the right side). Abreu de Oliveira was the first Portuguese aeronaut. On 17 th May 1884, he elevated in a gas balloon, in Tapada da Ajuda, falling in Tagus River near Cais do Sodré.

8 The pioneers The airship built by Cipriano Pereira Jardim Cipriano Pereira Jardim was the inventor of the dirigible balloon. He built an airship with military purposes (with hydrogen and an electric motor for propulsion), at the end of the 19 th century.

9 THE FIRST PLANES FLIGHTS History of aviation in Portugal

10 The first planes flights First flight with a plane in Portugal. Armand Ziptel attempted to pilot a plane for the first time in Portugal with the plane model Voisin Antoinette with 40 hp. It was on 17 th October This attempt resulted only in a leap of 200 meters to 8 meters high.

11 The first planes flights In 11 th December 1909 is founded Aero-Club of Portugal, with the objective of promoting aeronautics. Aero-Club of Portugal 1909s logo.

12 The first planes flights Óscar Blank Óscar Blank received the Aviator pilot license on 12 th July 1909, having been the first Portuguese civil pilot and one of the first in the world.

13 The first planes flights A Blériot XI plane at the present time. The first real flight was held by the Frenchman Julien Mamet on 27 th April 1910, after describing a wide circle to 50 meters in height, in his Blériot XI, in Lisbon

14 The first planes flights Bleriot monoplane, the Channel Crossing type. The first motor-driven aeroplane flight by a Portuguese was on 10 th September 1912, by the pilot Alberto Sanches de Castro, in a Bleriot monoplane, the Channel Crossing type.

15 The first planes flights First military aviation school In 14 th May 1914 was published the law establishing the first military aviation school to be installed in Vila Nova da Rainha, having been inaugurated in 1 st August 1916.
