Birdflight as the Basis of Aviation
A Contribution Towards a System of Aviation
Otto Lilienthal's genius in scientific observations and analysis became the basis for the experimentation of the early pioneers in aviation. His work is documented in this book, Birdflight As The Basis Of Aviation, translated from German and described as “the most important piece of work done during the 19th century in the field of aviation.” The "hero" of the Wright brothers, Lillienthal is considered to be "The Father of Gliding Flight." This definitive book has been out of print for almost a century, but is now available to everyone for a wonderful and absorbing journey into aviation history.
