October 9, 1890. A memorable date since it marks the beginning of aviation, thanks to the inventiveness, curiosity and insight of an exceptional man, Clément Ader. That day, a heavier-than-air machine flew fifty meters away. It was simply amazing! After observing bats fly and understanding that a flying machine could not depend only on the wind, Clément Ader created a machine whose wings resembled those of a winged creature equipped with a propeller engine.
