The ASW-15, designed in 1968 by Gerhard Waibel and built in series by Schleicher, is a glass composite sailplane, with shoulder-mounted wings and all-flying tailplane. The placement of its single tow-release is a compromise between the ideal placement for winching and aerotowing. With its tall vertical fin an mid-fin mounted horizontal tailplane, the combination of good looks and great performance has established thisaircraft as a well loved "early" classic.
Our one-third scale full fiberglass (FG) kit, built with the latest composite technology, offers you a model leaving no desires open – whether in looks or flight performance. The impressive measurements underline the majestic presence and flight performance of the model,making it a good choice for both thermal and slope flying. The high degree of prefabrication reduces the building time allowing you to get into the air sooner. The ASW 15 is a true classic!
