History of aeronautics

The hot-air balloon was invented by the Montgolfier brothers in 1782. In 1783, the first human flight took place in Paris. The balloon is then captive, that is to say, connected to the ground by a rope and later by a metal cable.

The zeppelin is a rigid airship type aerostat, manufactured in Germany in the 19th century, but inspired by the French balloons used during the War of 1870.

A seaplane is an airplane with the ability to land, land or take off on water.
There are two main families of aircraft, the hull seaplane and the floatplane. It is an airplane or ULM (Ultra Light Motorized). The first seaplane flight took place in France in 1905.
