About Traian Vuia
Romanian inventor who became known for his early experiments with fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
Early Life Experience of Traian Vuia
He went to Paris in search of a sponsor for his aeronautical experiments, but few believed that a machine heavier than the air could fly.
He never achieved the result he was hoping for–sustained flight–but his aircraft experiments did inspire other inventors and aviators to try out their own aircraft designs.
Family Life and Relationship
He grew up in a small Romanian village, which was later renamed in his honor.
His supporters claimed that he preceded Wilbur and Orville Wright in the successful flying of an airplane.
