Schleicher ASK 21

The ASK 21 is a two-seater mid-wing with 17m span, designed by Rudolf Kaiser, one of the most important sailplane designers of recent years. The glider has very docile flight characteristics combined with an easy handling – both on the ground and in the air – which makes the aircraft a true favourite amongst instructors. The ASK 21 performing at the Air Show is operated by the RAF Gliding & Soaring Association and will be flown by Ian Gallacher, who is an instructor at RAF Cosford.
