Snowmobiles can fly. Anything that goes farther than the Wright brothers at Kittyhawk is really flying

On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered airplane 20 feet above a wind-swept beach in North Carolina. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet.

Three more flights were made that day with Orville's brother Wilbur piloting the record flight lasting 59 seconds over a distance of 852 feet

Levi LaVallee went 361 feet on a snowmobile
