Glenn Curtiss is one of the most significant names in the early history of aviation, and a great rival of the Wright Brothers. One of his most significant contributions was the development of the aileron. Manufactured in Hammondsport, NY, the Museum’s 1911 Curtiss Pusher is one of the oldest original airplanes in our collection. It was once owned by John Kaminski, the first licensed pilot in Wisconsin and later owned by Dale Crites of Waukesha, WI, who regularly flew it at air shows.
