Air & aerodynamics
How it flies
They used different methods for the propelling: the glider was towed by a steam automobile that reached a constant speed of 50 km/hour. The structure of the plane was made of wood, the wings were covered by a blanket hardened with engrudo (wheat paste) and the landing gear was adapted from steel tubes and bicycle wheels.

The gliders were hidden to avoid someone else stealing their design, they covered the gliders with linen cloths.The tests were performed at different hours, mainly at dawn, because the gliders were severely damaged after each flight.

Where they live
Preditors and prey
Aldasoro brothers
Aldasoro brothers
Juan Pablo Aldasoro was born on September 14, 1893 and Eduardo Aldasoro was born on October 27, 1894. Juan Pablo Aldasoro and Eduardo Aldasoro were aviation pioneers.The inseparable brothers alternated their studies of carrying out with their vocation being mechanics and a passion for flying.

Did You know
The Blue Jay’s feathers aren't  actually blue.  it is the result of distorted light.

Blue Jays are a slower flying bird. It can make them easy prey for hawks and owls.

These birds have been known to go find something white to put on the outside of their nests.

blue feathers. The blue jay flies because of the way its wings are shaped and the weight of the wings. The wings are feather-covered  which are attached to
the body of the bird by bone, muscle, and

How they contributed to flight
When the airplane was finished, Madero's War Minister General inspected the plane very carefully. He decided that before testing it, Juan Pablo and Eduardo Aldasoro should be granted a scholarship by the Government of Mexico to attend the Moisant aviation school in New York. the Aldasoro brothers, joined in action, traveled to the USA and were the first Mexicans to graduate as pilots on March 12, 1913. On the graduation day, the authorities authorized one of the recent pilots to fly over the Statue of Liberty. Juan Pablo won the draw and took off the training fields at Long Island NY, he completed the flight, above the waters with total control and security, he reached the Statue, and returned to the fields as the first man to fly over the statue of liberty.

In 1908 they started designing and constructing their first glider. They achieved amazing results as they managed to fly about one hundred meters in their own designed gliders.
