Thinking of buying an EN-A or EN-B glider?

Whilst window shopping for new gliders, I came across the DHV's independent tests of various gliders to find out how well they match their target pilot group.

Watching the recent SIV course at Ohau, I was surprised by the reactions of some of the gliders.

This is a really interesting test and it shows you that a "high end EN-B" can catch you out as they require some knowledgeable pilot input to recover cleanly from some situations.

Happy reading:

P.S Anybody seen the new APCO zefira? Claimed best glide ratio of 10.7 and 10 at 55k.p.h
All for EN-C......
