The first flight was made by the Wright brothers in 1903. The first commercial flight was in the United States. The flight of the first plane was between St.Petersburg and Tampa, which is 23 minutes, about 21 miles, between the two cities. They held an auction to be able to be the passenger. Mr.Abram was the person who won the auction. He paid $400 which would be $5000 in this century. The first cheap commercial flights weren’t until after WWII. They made a commercial so that people could watch it and get to know more about the airplane. Everything started to change, it was easier for a traveler to travel around the world. The world started to build airports so their own can travel.
