Todd Reichert and Cameron Robertson: First in Flight


Todd Reichert and Cameron Robertson led the team that designed and built the Snowbird Human-Powered Ornithopter.

On Aug. 2, 2010, the Snowbird became the world’s first human-powered flapping-wing aircraft to sustain flight, the realization of an ancient aeronautical dream.

In 2012, Reichert and Robertson established AeroVelo Inc., a company dedicated to increasing the public’s awareness of sustainable solutions to society’s most pressing technological challenges.
