Our glider is inspired by the studies made by Leonardo in the second part of his life, after leaving the “beating wing” concept ( ornithopters ) observed in birds and reported in many designs and machines projects trying to use the power of man to quickly move the wing , he observes and discovers the hover of larger birds .
The glider is inspired to this type of soaring flight, in which are exploited the wind, currents, and the lift of the air .
We do not know if the glider was ever tried or what results were obtained . Studies and observations following the design of the glider in the Codex Atlanticus , brought Leonardo very close to realizing his dream.
