We returned home, after these experiments, with the conviction that sailing flight was not the exclusive prerogative of birds.More Otto Lilienthal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One can get a proper insight into the practice of flying only by actual flying experiments. . . . The manner in which we have to meet the irregularities of the wind, when soaring in the air, can only be learnt by being in the air itself. . . . The only way which leads us to a quick development in human flight is a systematic and energetic practice in actual flying experiments.More Otto Lilienthal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Artificial flight may be defined as that form of aviation in which a man flies at will in any direction by means of an apparatus attached to his body, the use of which requires personal skill. Artificial flight by a single individual is the proper beginning for all species of artificial flight, as the necessary conditions can most easily be fulfilled when man flies individually.More Otto Lilienthal quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
