One hundred and seven years ago, Czech audiences had the opportunity to see the takeoff and landing of an airplane for the first time. The famous Czech aviation engineer Jan Kaspar made the first public flight in these lands in his hometown of Pardubice. The next year, he achieved his legendary long-distance flight, Pardubice – Malá Chuchle, when he flew more than 121 km in an hour and a half. In the face of such courage, knowledge and the ability to keep things in check even in a situation as dangerous as piloting the first airplanes, there is nothing we can do but tip our hat to him.
