Which American city/town has been given the title of "The Birthplace of Aviation"?
Two men from Dayton brought changes in human history in 1903. They were Wilbur and Orville Wright who invented the airplane in their cycle shop.
The fact that Dayton, Ohio is the birth place of aviation was officially announced by the United States government. The House and Senate of the U.S. voted 378-3 in support of a resolution passed regarding Dayton, Ohio as the place where aviation began. This proposal was passed in the Senate in June 2003.
Though Dayton was officially declared as the birth place of aviation, North Carolinians argued that the first flight by Wright brothers was made at Kitty Hawk where the flight was made on 17th December, 1903. The 3 votes against the resolution passed by the United States house of Parliament were given by the representatives from North Carolina.
