This essay aims to analyze the reception of the ``Myth of Icarus and Daedalus'' in colonial America. Starting from the moralizing function of the Ovidian Icarus as exemplum ex contrario in the festive and political discourse of the early eighteenth century, the article analyzes its specific re-reading in the Enlightenment debate, through the contribution of the royal Cosmographer Cosme Bueno with his ``Disertacian sobre el arte de Volar'' (1790) and the ``Nuevo sistema de navegar por los aires'' (1762) by Santiago de Cardenas.
