Description Technical Specs Extended Information
TITLE: Flying Machine
INVENTOR: Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright
YEAR: 1906
PRINT#: W1393S

The Wright brothers wrote their 1903 patent application themselves, but it was rejected. In January 1904 they hired Ohio patent attorney Henry Toulmin, and in 1906, they were granted this patent. The patent illustrates a non-powered flying machine, the 1902 glider. The patent's importance lies in its claim of a new and useful method of controlling a flying machine, powered or not. The patent describes the steerable rear vertical rudder and its innovative use in combination with wing-warping, enabling the airplane to make a coordinated turn, a technique that prevents hazardous adverse yaw, the problem Wilbur had when trying to turn his 1901 glider. Finally, the patent describes the forward elevator, used for ascending and descending.
