SG-38 glider at Ekeby, Eskilstuna, Sweden

Me enjoying my third high altitude flight with the vintage SG-38 glider at Eskilstuna soaring club during the youth-camp of 2009. A modified old car towed the plane with a 600 m long rope to an altitude of about 200 m. After that; pure flying, as real as it gets. My best flying experience by far!

Classic Glider Flight - The Ultimate Freedom
Flying the classic Schulgleiter 'SG' 38 in Eutingen im Gäu "EDTE". We present it there once a year for the "Mobile Legenden" classics Festival & Airshow. It's an absolute pure feeling of gliding compared to modern gliders. Flying long distances/ cross country for me is a challenge and I love it, but with the SG38 its a short but awesome time to enjoy. Reasons why I flew with the suit is cause I came back to the airport after grandmas birthday and decided to fly it dressed like I am - plus a cylinder. The lion of my little sister was obviously hungry for a ride too so I took him with me. A big thank you to all the people around helping me and my dad aero towing me up. Everything filmed with GoPro Hero 4 black & silver. I usually use the settings 1080S with 30fps or higher. Wide just in one clip I had it accidentally on narrow.

Schneider Schulgleiter SG 38 Glider
Copyright © 2011 Malcolm Auld This video and audio material may not be used in any form without written permission. The Zögling was a simple lightweight glider for basic flight instruction. It was designed to start with rubber ropes, a common way to start a glider in the years shortly after WWI. It was designed by Alexander Lippisch who became famous for his design of the Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet, a rocket powered/gliding flying wing. As the National Socialist Party came to power in the 1930s, the glider school and talented young fliers drew the attention of the Nazis who saw an opportunity to utilize the planes, pilots and launching facilities at Wasserkuppe. In 1933 the old Rhön-Rositten Club (a branch of the Hesse Flying Club) was dissolved and the it's officers dismissed. The organization re-emerged as the "German Air Sport Union" headed by Dr. Oscar Ursinus as part of the Nazi system. All gliding activities, including research and development, became controlled by the state. As Germany made further preparations for an inevitable war, Wasserkuppe became an official training camp for the Nazi Youth Flight Corps. Exploiting a loop hole in the Treaty of Versailles, Hitler did everything possible to encourage glider flying. Funding for the program was subsidized through the efforts of brown-shirted storm troopers who "urged" German citizens to donate to "sport flying". It would be an easy matter to transform the skilled, young glider aviators into fighter and bomber pilots. Many of the technical school pilots had built their own planes. They represented a body of trained men who would be able to take leadership roles in airplane factories in time of conflict.
