A German Canard Aeroplane

A German Canard Aeroplane THE type of aircraft which is now called the Ente is characterised by the fact that, in contrast to the normal aeroplane with a tail, it has an elevator in front of the main supporting surfaces. The attempt to build such aeroplanes is not new, but dates back to the early days of flying. One of the first flights in Europe by Santos Dumont was made with a biplane of the Ente type other examples being the aeroplanes of 1910 and 1911 of Professor Reissner of Germany, and of Voisin. It was the latter who gave the Ente its name Canard. These attempts have, however, sunk into oblivion for reasons quite unconnected with the principle. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE type of aircraft which is now called the Ente is characterised by the fact that, in contrast to the normal aeroplane with a tail, it has an elevator in front of the main supporting surfaces. The attempt to build such aeroplanes is not new, but dates back to the early days of flying. One of the first flights in Europe by Santos Dumont was made with a biplane of the Ente type other examples being the aeroplanes of 1910 and 1911 of Professor Reissner of Germany, and of Voisin. It was the latter who gave the Ente its name Canard. These attempts have, however, sunk into oblivion for reasons quite unconnected with the principle.
