Is there anyone in the US that can blow a replacement canopy for a ASW20?


This outfit is not in the US but in Argentina. They have an impressive list of gliders for which they make replacement canopies. May be worth to check them out:https://spaeroparts.com/en/opal_service/gliders/

Does anyone have experience with them? They have ASW-20 and L-23 which I need.

That's why I posted it here to find out. They send a mass e-mail to my club's address but I never heard of them. It looks like a legit business and they may be a good alternative to the commonly known sources.

No experience with them, but I have been in touch via email to see if they want to make my HP-24 canopy transparencies. Their price on the raw ASW 20 transparency in clear, 1/8" thickness, minus vent window or cutout, but including packing case, is about $1100 FOB their works. That's a pretty good price, but you still have to pay for shipping and insurance and perhaps duties and other fees. By the time it gets stateside, it's probably around $2000 to $2500. Which is still a pretty good deal if the quality is good. If you do a group buy and get several shipped in the same packing case it could be a great deal.
