Hello Aviators!! We at the Infinite Flight Brasil 🇧🇷 (IFBR) team would like to invite everyone to participate in this special event in honor of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Alberto Santos Dumont, one of the Fathers of Aviation. The event will be held at Santos Dumont Airport (SBRJ), which was named in his honor. It is a moment of great pride to be able to pay this homage to such an important Brazilian hero for aviation, and to demonstrate our recognition for his contributions.

About Santos Dumont

150 years ago, one of the greatest Brazilian inventors was born in the interior of Minas Gerais: the remarkable Alberto Santos Dumont, considered one of the precursors of aviation and the creation of aircraft in the world. The life story, works and values of our Father of Aviation and Patron of Brazilian Aeronautics are sources of inspiration not only in our country, but in various regions around the planet. His innovations and contributions to aviation are still celebrated today.

Born into a wealthy family in Minas Gerais, Brazil, Santos Dumont showed an early interest in mechanics and inventions. At the age of 18, he moved to Paris, France, where he had access to advanced technologies and knowledge. There, he began designing and building hot air balloons, performing several successful flights and setting records.

Santos Dumont turned his attention to motor aviation. In 1906, he built the 14-Bis, an aircraft powered by a gasoline engine of his own invention. With the 14-Bis, on October 23, 1906, he performed the first approved flight of a heavier-than-air aircraft, covering a distance of 60 meters in Paris.

Santos Dumont continued to perfect his inventions and set other aviation records. In 1907, he flew his plane the Demoiselle, a hand-held monoplane aircraft that influenced future light aircraft designs.

In addition to his technical achievements, Santos Dumont is also known for his charismatic personality and his role as a defender of peace and the development of science for the benefit of humanity. He was an ardent advocate of sharing information and scientific advances for the benefit of all.

The distinguished inventor and one of the Fathers of Aviation died on July 23, 1932, in Guarujá (SP), but his legacy lives on until today. His heart is preserved under the custody of the Brazilian Air Force and is on display at the Aerospace Museum, in Rio de Janeiro (RJ). Before and after his death, he received many well-deserved honors in Brazil and abroad, including the just epithet “Father of Aviation”. He is remembered not only as an aviation pioneer, but also as a visionary who changed human history.
