Don't be surprised if it the first time you hear this name, but his man was the pilot of all pilots. At the age of 15 he built his own glider, jumped of a cliff and well - crashed. But it didn't stop him, his passion for aviation only grew stronger. He achieved a doctorate in aeronautical engineering and two years later performed the first ever outside loop with a Curtiss Hawk. He then took up racing, wining most major trophies possible and braking the landplane speed record.
