Taking off with a brief history lesson including the Wright Brothers' famous first flight, this exciting resource engages readers with the feats of today's aeronautical engineers, scientists, and researchers as they design, test, engineer, and build the flying machines of the present and the future. Readers will explore supersonic planes of the future that will fly faster than a speeding bullet, flying cars that can lift off and speed passengers to school or grandma's house, and biofuels that will power the next generation of aircraft.
