Just over 100 years ago the Wright brothers made their first attempts at flight. August 19th is National Aviation Day where we celebrate their achievements and all the advancements made since then in the field of aviation engineering. Aviation engineers are responsible for designing, creating, testing and maintaining all types of aircraft. They can work on navigation systems as well as mechanical elements within airplanes. It is thanks to their work and innovations that air travel is so reliable today.
