Join the Ornithopter Society

Whether you are a student, a hobbyist, or a professional researcher, you can join the Ornithopter Society to advance your ornithopter knowledge, share ideas with others, and get your work published in our quarterly Flapping Wings newsletter.

As a member of the Ornithopter Society, you will be helping to support special programs including our international competitions and a micro-grant program for ornithopter research. Members also receive the Ornithopter Design Manual. This 87-page ebook by Nathan Chronister goes into depth on ornithopter design and construction techniques.

The Ornithopter Society, started by Patrick Deshaye in 1984, works to provide the public with accurate information about the history of ornithopters, to provide our members with information on how to build ornithopters, to provide resources for educators, to promote the development of ornithopter technology, and to provide a lasting record of accomplishments in the field.
