|What are the Parts of a Sailplane|
Here are 3-view drawings of a modern sailplane. Although somewhat simplified, the drawings show the basic structure of a typical sailplane for the 15 metre class. There are many different racing classes of gliders, Standard Class (15m span, no flaps), 15 Metre Class (15m span with flaps), Open Class (Large metre spans, ranging from 15m to 25m and over), and the new World Class which uses the PW-5 sailplane exclusively.
