Karl Wilhelm Otto Lilienthal war ein deutscher Luftfahrtpionier. Er war wohl der erste Mensch, der erfolgreich und wiederholbar Gleitflüge mit einem Flugzeug absolvierte und dem Flugprinzip „schwerer als Luft“ damit zum Durchbruch verhalf. Seine experimentellen Vorarbeiten und erste Flugversuche ab 1891 führten zur bis heute gültigen physikalischen Beschreibung der Tragfläche. Die Produktion des Normalsegelapparates in seiner Maschinenfabrik in Berlin war die erste Serienfertigung eines Flugzeugs. Sein Flugprinzip war die Umsetzung von Lageenergie in Auftrieb und Vortrieb und wurde von den Brüdern Wright zum Prinzip des angetriebenen Flugzeugs weiterentwickelt.

Zitate Otto Lilienthal

„Eine Flugmaschine zu erfinden bedeutet wenig; sie zu bauen schon mehr; aber sie zu fliegen, das ist das Entscheidende.“

—  Otto Lilienthal
Dieses wohl bekannteste Zitat hat in Wahrheit der Franzose Ferdinand Ferber Lilienthal in den Mund gelegt und das 1908 in seinem Buch L’Aviation, ses débuts, son développement ausführlich dargestellt. (Deutsche Übersetzung: Die Kunst zu Fliegen (1910)).

„Opfer müssen gebracht werden.“

—  Otto Lilienthal
allgemein als Letzte Worte überliefert, aber erst 1940 bei der Umgestaltung von Lilienthals Grab auf diesem angebracht. Glaubwürdiger ist der vom Augenzeugen Paul Beylich belegte Satz: "Ich muß etwas ausruhen, dann machen wir weiter." (Manuell Ruoff: Fliegen wie die Vögel. preussische-allgemeine. de 17. Mai 2008)

„I, too, have made it a lifelong task of mine to add a cultural element to my work, which should result in uniting countries and reconciling their people.“

—  Otto Lilienthal
Context: I, too, have made it a lifelong task of mine to add a cultural element to my work, which should result in uniting countries and reconciling their people. Our experience of today's civilisation suffers from the fact that it only happens on the surface of the earth. We have invented barricades between our countries, custom regulations and constraints and complicated traffic laws and these are only possible because we are not in control of the 'kingdom of the air', and not as 'free as a bird'. Numerous technicians in every state are doing their utmost to achieve the dream of free, unlimited flight and it is precisely here where changes can be made which would have a radical effect on our whole way of life. The borders between countries would lose their significance, because they could not be closed off from each other. Linguistic differences would disappear, as human mobility increased. National defence would cease to devour the best resources of nations as it would become impossible in itself. And the necessity of resolving disagreements among nations in some other way than by bloody battles would, in its turn, lead us to eternal peace. We are getting closer to this goal. When we will reach it, I do not know. Letter to Moritz von Egidy (c. January 1894) - Original German text online http://www.lilienthal-museum.de/olma/l1852.htm

„Artificial flight may be defined as that form of aviation in which a man flies at will in any direction by means of an apparatus attached to his body, the use of which requires personal skill.“

—  Otto Lilienthal
Context: Artificial flight may be defined as that form of aviation in which a man flies at will in any direction by means of an apparatus attached to his body, the use of which requires personal skill. Artificial flight by a single individual is the proper beginning for all species of artificial flight, as the necessary conditions can most easily be fulfilled when man flies individually. Variant translation: Artificial flight may be defined as that form of aviation in which a man flies at will in any direction, by means of an apparatus attached to his body, the use of which requires the dexterity of the user.
