Today is Aviator’s Day: Thank you to all the pilots who connect us!

Today is Aviator’s Day! Michelin Aircraft Tyre thanks all the pilots, men and women, making the world fly.

Brazilian Aviator’s Day is celebrated on October 23. It commemorates the first official flight of Alberto Santos-Dumont, a Brazilian aviation pioneer. In Brazil, Santos-Dumont is regarded as the “father of flight” and considered a national hero.

Alberto Santos-Dumont was one of the very few people to have contributed significantly to the development of both lighter-than-air and heavier-than-air aircraft.

Pilots: this day is for you!
