Background Information and Research Avenues


After years of research, including observations of birds, Otto Lilienthal generated tables of air lift values at varying incidence angles. The Wright Brothers tested these results by using a bicycle on which they had attached a horizontal wheel to the front. On each side (left and right), they placed wing models which allowed them to test the angle data.
