The Glider

Starting from 1490s Leonardo turned his studies to gliding flight, aware of the impossibility of giving form to his theories on flight with beating wings, even though they were correct. He studied with attention the trajectories of the flights of birds, noting that depending on the force and direction of the wind, the birds would tend to modify their trajectories.

Leonardo conceived very simple, essential machines, prophetically anticipating our modern gliders. In this case, as well, though, the material available, meaning wood, was too heavy to allow a practical realization of his ideas. This model represents a glider with wings held taut by means of cords and braces. The outer part of the wings is divided from the inner by a pivot allowing them to move partially. Two cords connect the extremities of the wings with the pilot. In the glider drawn by Leonardo, the pilot's position has been studied so that the pilot can balance himself using opportune movements of the lower part of the body.

Leonardo da Vinci, probably the greatest universal genius of all time, died on 2 May 1519. Revell honoured the artist, anatomist and engineer with a selection of kits of his greatest inventions. The elaborate models made of the authentic material wood are partly movable and make it possible to get very close to Leonardo's groundbreaking ideas. With his flying machine, Leonardo wanted to construct a machine that would make it possible to fly like a bird. His study anticipated the ideas that we still find today in modern hang-gliders.
