Jockey’s Ridge State Park  |  Kitty Hawk Kites

Friday, April 9 | Talk begin at 11 am and 1 pm (This event is weather-dependent. Call the Flight School at 252-441-2426 for the most up-to-date information.)

Join Billy Vaughn with the Kitty Hawk Kites Hang Gliding School as he gives an account of the Wright Brothers’ history before their work with the ‘02 glider. This will include their early investigations, the invention of wing warping to control roll, and their first trip to Kitty Hawk. Listen to the story of how and why they chose the Outer Banks, some of the natural history of the area, including the significance of the ancient barrier dunes, and Jockey’s Ridge being the last example of the living dunes the Wrights utilized. Learn about the significance of the ‘02 glider in the Wrights’ pursuit of powered flight. We will talk about their addition of the integrated rudder, and how this allowed for the first controlled flights in all three axes: roll, pitch, and yaw. This is related to the story of their successes with this aircraft, and how they led directly to the first powered flight in 1903.

Start Location:

Parking Lot of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. First two RV spots.


The 1902 Wright Glider Replica will be on display from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM on Friday, April 9, 2021*.
