ⓘ AEA Silver Dart

The Silver Dart was a derivative of an early aircraft built by a Canadian/U.S. team, which after many successful flights in Hammondsport, New York, earlier in 1908, was dismantled and shipped to Baddeck, Nova Scotia. It was flown from the ice of Baddeck Bay, a sub-basin of Bras dOr Lake, on 23 February 1909, making it the first controlled powered flight in Canada. The aircraft was piloted by one of its designers, John McCurdy. The original Silver Dart was designed and built by the Aerial Experiment Association, formed under the guidance of Dr. Alexander Graham Bell.

From 1891, bell had begun experiments at Baddeck and a vending machine for developing motor heavier-than-air aircraft. By 1908, the success of the AEA was seen in a series of innovative designs, culminating in the Silver dart. By the time the Silver dart was constructed in late 1908, he was the air associations, the experiment of the fourth aircraft. One of its precursors, the June bug, had already broken records. He won the scientific American trophy for making the first official one mile 1609 m on flights to North America.

The frame and structure of the Silver dart was made of steel tube, bamboo, friction tape, wire and wood. The wings were covered with rubberized, silvery balloon cloth, presented to captain Thomas Scott Baldwin, a vending machine, hence the name "Silver dart". Its Kirkham engine, supplied by Glenn Curtiss, reliable V-8 engine that developed 50 HP 37 kW at 1.000 rpm. The propeller was carved from a solid piece of wood. The aircraft had what is now called "Duck" or "Elevator in front" design. Like most aircraft of its time the Silver dart had poor control characteristics, in addition, it has no brakes.
