flying ship dates

I haven't been able to find any firm info on this... when did the Alphatians discover how to make flying ships? And when did the Heldannic Knights discover how to ake flying ships, create their hawk ships?

Alphatians have known about flying ships for at least 2000 years. I am guessing most likely a lot longer than that too, though they only arrived on Mystara 2000 years ago (BC1000).

Heldannic Ships are powered by a single artifact called the Star of Vanya. According to this timeline, it was discovered in AC 953 and the first Warbird is seen one year later.

It seems likely the Alphatians had flying ships in BC 3500, when they began their colonization and conquest of nearby planets and other planes. They certainly must have had them when Ar created the kingdom of Floating Ar in AY 250 (BC 750).
