Sir George Cayley ....invented the airplane in 1799......

We will have a website online soon with information on Cayley. Let us know your area of interest in his flying machines

My idea is to offer facsimile documentation of his flying machines and background information on his life at Brompton in Yorkshire where he lived and launched the first man carrying glider in history -1853.
Ian Amor is an authority on Cayley and builds replica's..four are in the Yorkshire air museum. One in the original workshop at Brompton
