Blanchard Jean Pierre François(1753—1809)

Jean-Pierre Blanchard was a French inventor, most remembered a pioneer in aviation and ballooning. With John Jeffries, became the first to fly a balloon across the English Channel between England and France. Also, he is considered to be the first professional balloonist. He is believed to be the first skydiver (he apparently parachuted from a balloon as early as 1785). He introduced ballooning to several countries in Europe, before leaving France (at the time of the French Revolution) to go to America. There, he piloted the first balloon flight in North America, on 9 January 1793, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
