Who is Armen Firman?
Armen Firman was an Andalusian-Arab remembered for an attempt at flight in 852 AD. He wrapped himself in a loose cloak stiffened with wooden struts and jumped from a tower in Córdoba, Spain, intending to use the garment as wings on which he could glide. The attempt was unsuccessful, but the garment slowed his fall enough that he only sustained minor injuries, making it the earliest example of a parachute or wingsuit.
