Why Charlie Taylor should matter to you
from Aircraft Maintenance Technology
It is the birthday of the father of aviation maintenance — and engineering and manufacturing — Charles E. Taylor. Born in 1868 in a small town in Illinois, Charles Taylor went from working as a bicycle repairman for the Wright Brothers to building the engine that powered their historic 1903 flight at Kitty Hawk. Talk about reinventing yourself! But despite his unparalleled contributions to the history of flight, his accomplishments, like his name, are relegated to the dust bin of history.
