In the 1981 cartoon Spiderman, Peter was shown using under arm web wings much like a "gilder suit" to slow his descent down. This was in a battle with a radioactively powered Sand Man. I was looking for a clip of it, but all I could find was a fan-made condensed episode on Youtube. Full Disclosure: The clips do have where Sand Man throws him off the roof of a tall building, but not where he uses the wings to glide. However, earlier in the episode, we do see Spidey use his webbing to instantly make a giant fly swatter to use against Sand Man.
To be fair, this was the 80s, so the "scientific logic" of this show was...loose, at best. I will seek out the full episode online, and see if I can post it here, giving the time stamp to where we see Spidey gliding. Again, full disclosure: this was not a regularly used ability for the Peter Parker Spiderman in most versions, but this proves there is a precedence for it. Unsurprisingly, it was hardly used in the same show where it could have been of REAL HELP to spidey, like when the Green Goblin dropped him over Central Park.
So i managed to find it:
The 1981 Spider-Man cartoon that ran concurrently with the same styled Spiderman & His Amazing Friends cartoon. Episode 5, titled The Sandman is Coming. Can be seen here:
At precisely 18:00 minuters in, we see Spidey, after being thrown off a building by Sand Man, create web wings under his arm that he uses to slow his decent to the ground. There are also a few instances of him making web wings in the comics to glide, though because this uses so much webfluid, its seen as impacticale One instance is here:
I can't say exactly where it comes from, but this shows he has used webbing for gliding on occasion before.....just not in the way it's shown on Homecoming or other modern media.
While searching, i came across an old video from Nerd Synch that spoke to the history of spiderman and the "web wings" phenomenon. Actually, it was the homecoming film that inspired its creation. Figured this may be a bit more informative than anything else I could offer. We should get Scott to join, because he knows his stuff:
