The First Flight Society is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization devoted to fostering and promoting a public awareness of and wide-spread interest in the origin, history and future of flight, in all its forms, and to memorialize Orville and Wilbur Wright, first in the world to successfully achieve powered flight in a heavier than-air machine, December 17, 1903, near Kill Devil Hills, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

The First Flight Society is a partner with the Wright Brothers National Memorial. The First Flight Society and Wright Brothers National Memorial share in our missions and purpose resulting in the benefit of a partnership that has endured since the Wright Brothers National Memorial became a part of the National Park System in 1933.
