A History of Excellence
Kitty Hawk is often known for the Wright Brothers and the site where the first flight took place. The brothers successfully made their first controlled powered airplane flights nearby, in the area of Kill Devil Hills. They chose the area, due to high levels of wind and the soft landing spots for their gliders among the sand dunes. After the first flight the Wright brothers walked 4 miles to the village of Kitty Hawk to send a telegram to their father to report about their accomplishment. The actual location and the monument to flight is located in what is now the town of Kill Devil Hills, but was then Kitty Hawk.
