Found grandpa’s old sketches

I asked my mother to look for the sketches of the flying bicycle my granddad once designed. After a long search she found them in the attic! Only 3 left unfortunately..

As a child I was always very intrigued by these drawings, back then I really believed that my granddad would once be able to fly on this bike. Later on I realised that this would never be possible, it was his naive, childish fantasy. The images of his flying bike always have been floating around in the back of my mind. For this reason my grandpa is still my biggest inspiration for starting this ‘Human Birdwings’ project. My dream about flying started because of his sketches. So I’m really happy my mother found these. Wondering where all the other drawings went, I’m quite sure there were much more!

Started this WordPress blog to write about and share my dream. My dream to fly in the same way as birds do. Like Leonardo DaVinci envisioned it centuries ago and many others before and after him. Not with a jetpack or with a hangglider. But with wings attached to the arms. The last years I’ve been figuring out a method to make this possible.

Soon more. I will explain what I have in mind and why. And share how I am going to beat gravity.
