Gabriel Voisin was born on February 5th of 1880 and lived until Christmas Day in 1973. He was born at Belleville-sur-Saône, France, and is remembered as a French aviation pioneer and a producer of automobiles. In 1900, he met Clement Ader who aided in the study of aeronautics. In mid-1905 he had a fast boat tow a glider that was lightweight yet structurally rigid. His glider flew for over 500 feet as the boat pulled he and the glider along. When the boat slowed, the glider came back down and went into the water, nearly drowning Voisin in the process. This near-death experience did not slow the ambition aviator; in 1906 he had opened the world's first aviation firm, the Les Freres Voisin, meaning Airplanes Voisin.
