The Past & Present 1. Sir George Caley, Otto Lilienthal, Samuel Pierpont Langley, and the Wright  Brothers: All used unmanned aircraft in the development of their concepts of  manned aircraft. What might their reasoning have been and what might some of  the advantages been in doing so I think one of the main reasons was to preserve their own life. Another would most likely be to observe how the wind flowed over the wings, how they would shape them and how these wings create lift. If any of them could sustain flight with a heavier then air aircraft then at that point you would think you would be able to put a man inside, especially if they could learn how to maneuver it. I think they needed to get it close before they would chance putting a person in them. 2. Replacing the human in the manned aircraft with a suitable mechanical system     provide to be a daunting problem in the past, even in some ways, to this day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
