 X-Prize
In the early days of aviation several important prizes were offered to people who dared to "push the envelope" of technology and pilot their aircraft faster, farther, higher, better, and more efficiently.
These prizes had the effect of accelerating the rate at which aviation and technology developed, bringing sooner the day when average citizens could fly from city to city as they wished.
Between 1905 and 1935, hundreds of aviation prizes stimulated the create of very different aircraft designs, each of which explored different regions of flight and different mechanisms for optimizing speed, safety and low cost travel.

 Richard Pearse
Although he had been established in his own secluded workshop building engines and aircraft for five years previous to the year 1903, it has not been possible to establish how many aircraft he had built and experimented with before he was seen flying in 1903.
There are accounts of a smaller machine preceding the better known flights of 1903 followed by a larger circular aircraft, another one of which little is known about, but which was built after he had moved to a very quiet secluded spot at a place called Milton.
In particular, other early aviation pioneers such as the Wrights used primitive wing warping, or 'side tipping' as Pearse described it, to attempt to control an aircraft in flight.
