The few isolated attempts to construct machines with flapping wings were too crude to prove – as is assumed – the hopelessness of this principle, and more and more public attention crystallizes an the sensational achievements of mono and biplanes-wonderful and gratifying no doubtbut woefully neglectful of the demands bass efficiency or economy.

Subcommittee on Aviation and Transportation R. By the gleam of the lantern lit by his work it became first possible to trace a pathway in the darkness, whereon subsequent investigators, equipped with the more powerful searchlights of modern science, were able to open up an unexplored tje. It is always a struggle as to who should get the credit as applied research cannot succeed without basic research.

The several fold-out pages of graph form airfoil data in the back of the original book have been reduced in size and printed on single pages. His book was the starting point for the Wright brothers Orville painstakingly translated it and they chose to build biplanes from the beginning — using Lilienthal’s airfoils and data from his book.


I’ve bidflight the work documented as well as the short bio on thier Otto and his brothers lives. Though his work was aviaion followed up in his own country, Germany, yet it bore ample fruit in other aviatuon, as witness the work of Chanute, Pilcher, Wright Brothers, Ferber and others.

It was therefore essentially the merit of Lilienthal, by applying his mechanical training to the problem of birdflight, and by a series of systematic investigations, to evolve some order from chaos, and to finally reduce the great mystery to a purely mechanical or dynamical proposition which, although incomplete in many respects, yet gave tangible shape to the whole, making it possible for future workers to fill the various gaps and to rectify some of the earlier assumptions which had.
