Aviation is defined as the design, manufacture, use, or operation of aircraft - in which the term aircraft refers to any vehicle capable of flight. Aircraft can either be heavier-than-air or lighter-than-air: lighter-than-air craft including balloons and airships, and heavier-than-air craft including airplanes, autogiros, gliders, helicopters.   A well-rounded pilot who knows about aviation’s roots and explores aviation history will understand and appreciate better that which exists today.
