Sky High! Introduces a whole ensemble of scientists, inventors, and builders: those from the distant past, such as Leonardo da Vinci and the Montgolfier brothers; those closer to the present, such as the Wright brothers or Otto Lilienthal; and current innovators, who have new, amazing ideas. Readers will discover how brilliant inventions and iconic machines were created and learn about breakthrough moments in the development of aviation.

This book introduces brave aviators, daring aerial circus performers, and test pilots; see how a jet engine operates, how aircraft- carrier staff work, and how it feels to travel in an airship; and even see the cockpit of a fighter jet and if it's possible to build an airplane in a garage! 

In an accessible and funny format, readers will learn the answers to important questions such as: How do planes not fall from the sky? How does a radar or parachute work? Are wings or rotors better?

Dimensions: 11" x 0.7" x 14.8"
