It rises because the heated air or gas inside is lighter than the surrounding air. A basket attached under the balloon carries a pilot and passengers. Piloted balloons are used for scientific research or for recreation. Airplane:  Airplane 1903: The Wright Brothers “Kitty Hawk” Fastest way to transport people and freight over long distances. Also used in war and firefighting. Helicopter:  Helicopter 1940 Lifted into air by propellers. Can take off and land in a small space.
