About me / Bio:
Aurel Vlaicu was a Romanian engineer, inventor, airplane constructor, and early pilot. He was born on November 19, 1882, in Binținți, which is now part of Geoagiu, Romania. Vlaicu attended high school in Orăștie and took his baccalaureate in Sibiu. He furthered his studies at the Technical University of Budapest and Technische Universität München, earning his engineer's diploma in 1907. Vlaicu's aviation career began with the construction of a glider in 1909. He moved to the Kingdom of Romania, where he built his first powered airplane, the A. Vlaicu Nr. I, which flew for the first time on June 17, 1910. Vlaicu was known for his pioneering contributions to Romanian and world aviation.
