For example the flying machine that he created was later on inspired by the Wright brothers, without Ibn Finas’s ideas they would have never thought of the fact of creating an air plane. This air plane that they had created succeeded. He built his own glider and flew off from a mountain, the flight was successful and many people had recognized him as the inventor of aviation. He also devised the means of manufacturing glass from sand, he also developed the rings that we see on maps of the solar system and showed us how the planets and stars move around. It was said that Leonardo da Vinci had drew plans of his own flying machine; he had took ideas from Ibn Firnas and used it to invent his own. His inventions were basically a bird costume and one of his famous flights was in Spain, when he flew for a few moments and unfortunately his attempt failed and he broke his neck.

“What man-made machine will ever achieve the complete perfection of even the goose’s wing?” – Abbas Ibn Firnas Abbas Ibn Firnas (810 A.D. – 887 A.D.) was a Muslim engineer, physician, and Arabic poet. He was of Berber descent and was born in Ronda, Spain. He is mostly known for his early attempt at aviation. Ibn Firnas was not only known for his early attempt at aviation, he was also known for his design of the water clock, which was also called Al-Maqata. In his house, he had a room where an audience would witness starts, clouds, thunder, and lightning, which he produced by instruments located in his basement laboratory.

In the 9th century in Spain, Abbas Ibn Firnas designed a “flying machine”, which was known to be created over 100 years before Da Vinci drew plans of his own flying machine. He was the first person to attempt constructing a flying machine. His creation deeply resembled a bird costume. His most known trial was in Cordoba, Spain, where he flew for a few moments, and fell to the ground, breaking his neck. It is said that Leonardo DaVinci’s sketches of modern aircraft were inspired by Firnas’. The Wright brothers successful attempt at aviation was also inspired by DaVinci’s sketches and Firnas’ findings, and thus, reaching the conclusion that if it weren’t for Firnas’ experiment, the Wright brothers wouldn’t have had such an easy and paved road to...
