SZD-54-2 Perkoz

The latest member of our fleet is the dual control glider SZD-54-2 “Perkoz” from the house of SZD in Poland. As the further development of the well known glider SZD-50 “Puchacz” this glass fibre sailplane has passed its maiden flight just in 2011. As a result you can´t find this glider on many different airfields in Germany yet. But this modern sailplane shows very well that it is a real all-round talent. That´s why this Perkoz is the new flagship of our fleet since December 2019. Its three different versions of wing tips offers unlimited aerobatics with the 17,5m-wingspan without any winglets. On the other hand also nice cross country flights are possible with the 20m-wingspan and its winglets. Those wings give this sailplane its good gliding ratio and power ratings which come very close to those of the well known “Duo-Discus”. At the same time the very easy handling of the Perkoz turns it to a perfect glider for the flight training. That´s why this new aircraft will be used for many differnt flights in our gliding club. If you would also like to try a nice guest flight or maybe some aerobatics with this modern sailplane we would be very happy to welcome you on our airfield.
