I happened upon the following Wikipedia page:
It reminded me of the Sikorsky quote that someone here has in their sigline, about early aviation inventors also being the lead test pilot.
I understand the Wiki entry is by no means comprehensive (lol), I guess I just thought it'd be more... substantial.
Can anyone here think of some that are missing?
I understand that hang glider inventor/builders also acted as their own test pilots, allegedly killing most of them over the years.
