Steiger, Carl
 
Swiss pioneer Carl Steiger-Kirchhofer (1856-1946) made some flights with this parabolic wing tail-less glider in 1891. In the same year he published the booklet "Vogelflug und Flugmaschine", in which he proposed several very designs with surprisingly modern-looking features. He continued with other projects, such as a 1908 underpowered biplane and several studies of bird flight and bird models, including wind tunnel experiments.
