The Snowbird Human-Powered Ornithopter

Friday, September 24th, 2010

The Snowbird Human-Powered Ornithopter was designed and constructed by a team of students from the University of Toronto. On August 2nd 2010 it sustained level flight for 19.3 seconds, becoming the world’s first successful human-powered ornithopter. Rather than employing a pedaling action via a chain drive, the Snowbird uses a rowing motion using componentry from Derk Thijs’ Rowingbike.
