Grob 103 III

It is often used for recreational soaring. The G 103 C Twin III is a development of the Twin II with a new ‘Discus’ plan wing of slightly increased span and modified airfoil section. The cockpit has detailed improvements including better ventilation, relocated airbrake levers to give better purchase, and canopies restrained by gas-filled struts. The unpowered sailplane is cleared for aerobatics similar to the Twin II Acro. Its best glide ratio was measured as 36:1

Blanik L-23

Blanik L-23

The Super Blaník is an improved version of the original LET L-13 Blanik. To save weight, the new wings were made without flaps, which were rarely used. LET also moved the tailplane to the top of the vertical stabilizer for better protection in case of outlanding. It has a new instrument suite and a new two-piece canopy (with different framing from that on the original L-13) to improve vision.

Grob G102 Astir CS
  • Registration: N133SS / ADK
  • Owned By: Adirondack Soaring Association
  • Manufacturer: Grob Aircraft / Burkhart Grob
  • Country: Germany

Grob G102 Astir CS

The Astir CS [Club Standard] is of composite (fiberglass/resin) construction, has a large wing area, a T-tail and water ballast tanks in its wings. The large wing area gives good low-speed handling characteristics but its high-speed performance is inferior to other Standard-class gliders. In early versions some of the fuselage frame was wood, but this was replaced with a light alloy casting which sometimes cracks after heavy landings. The tail dolly is unusual by being plugged into a vertical hole.
