How many gliders with a wing span of 13.5 or less do you know? There
is a proposal of creating 13.5 class on IGC agenda on their next
meeting in Laussane.

To start the list...

1.Russia
2.PW-5
3.Sparrowhawk
4.SW-1 Swift
5.SZD-59 Acro (in 13.2m mode, the one that gets me exited...)
6.Woodstock
7.1-26

Don't forget the Schweizer 2-22 or the 1-19 and the 1-20, but I think the
latter might have been a one off. Then there's the Baker-McMillan Cadet
and the SG-38 and especially the SG-38A; it was a vast improvement over
the original and it should be handicapped.

wonder if this might be an incentive to develop a "new" design for a
13.5 meter ship.
that would indeed be exciting, especially for someone who tinkers with
this sort of stuff!

Maybe I'll crack open SolidWorks tonight and have a go at
it.................
