National Aviation Day was established 75 years ago on August 19, 1939, by President Franklin Roosevelt, in honor of aviation pioneer Orville Wright's birthday. As we all know, Orville was one half of the Wright brothers, who are credited with inventing and building the world's first successful airplane and making the first controlled human fixed-wing powered flight.

Red Bull has a long history in flight, so National Aviation Day is a big deal to us. From the thrilling skydivers of the Red Bull Air Force to the daring pilots of Red Bull Air Race, we invite you to celebrate aviation with us in the stories below.
