|A Place Where An Aircraft Can Takeoff
And Land Is Given A Formal Name
On December 15, 1902, Ferdinand Ferber was given permission to build an aerodrome in the area beyond the Promenade des Anglais, France.
This is the new term for a place where an aircraft can take off and land. Ferdinand Ferber, France, builds a bad copy of a Wright glider and attaches a motor to it. He attempts to fly it tethered to a crane. He fails. 1898, Ferdinand Ferber and Ernest Archdeacon, France, organized a Aero Club of France.
