The Wright Brothers' Evolution
The Wright's design process was evolutionary. Each aircraft's design was developed from the previous one, starting with the 1899 kite. The Wright Experience will build all of the Wrights' machines from the 1899 kite through the Model "B", their first production aircraft.

In Progress: Engines

Horizontal Four Engines: We are currently constructing the Wrights' Horizontal Four engine for our reproduction 1903 Flyer. This engine is based on our study of the Wrights' papers as well as our study of the #3 engine, and the essential collaboration and knowledge of the Hay brothers of Wisconsin.
