But in the year 1903, humans achieved this feat in the person or let me just persons, or I will just simply say two brothers the name Wilbur and Orville Wright, Popularly called the wright brothers, took up the big challenge and succeeded. 

Wilbur Wright was the first to bring his model for testing, but his model failed the test; then, a few months later, on December 17, 1903, to be precise, Orville's model was to be tested, and it passed the test by staying afloat in the air for 12 seconds and moving for 120 feet in the sky, But the accolades were given to both of them because Orville model was just an upgrade of his brother's, so they both get the credit for the success.
