McCurdy didn't have a pilot's license until a year later...

But then, he was credited with being the first British subject to fly in the British Empire....

Do you think the Wright Bros. had licences?

For what? Back then everybody just knew people couldn't fly. Would some government bureau issue a 'license' for something that couldn't be done?

It wasn't until after God said "LET THERE BE LIGHT" that the electric company said "Let there be a Meter".
