Nearest Location by [email protected]

Softie Parachute for Schleicher gliders with a seat back cutout by Craig Reinholt

Oxygen Tank for Schleicher ASW 27 or 28 by Discus 44[_2_]
I am looking for a replacement Qxygen cylinder for my ASW 28. It is the weird one almost the same size as a "D" bottle but smaller in diameter 4.125 inches and 16.5 inches long. Mine is stamped DOT-3AA2015 REE16.6 Which is the cubic ft capacity.
