IKaruS – the institution for wings that really hold.
Almost everyone is familiar with the story of Icarus, who disregarded his father’s advice when he flew too close to the sun. However, it is less known that the father’s advice referred not only to the height of the flight but also to the depth of the flight – Icarus was, therefore, not supposed to fly too high or too low to avoid damaging his wings.
In our interpretation of the story, balance is crucial: finding the ideal flight altitude and stacking neither too high nor too low – a task that all students must master sooner or later. We can help with that!
