Schleicher ASG-32 20 Meter Glider

Schleicher's new ASG 32Mi

Next to Schleicher's ASK 21 trainer and their new ASH 30 Mi Open Class high performance glider, they are now introducing the ASG 32 Mi – a totally new design specifically tailored for the very popular 20 Meter FAI Two-seater Class. The ASG 32Mi is just as much for the ambitious competition pilot as it is for clubs and recreational pilots due to its wide range of options.

The base model of the ASG 32 is a pure sailplane with a four-piece wing, plus snap-on winglets. Automatic control connections are factory standard and so is the integrated engine bay for a low-cost engine retrofit at a later stage.

Full control in the rear cockpit.
Dual controls are in front and back seat. The landing gear with a large diameter main wheel can be operated in the back seat, too. Due to the forward location of the main wheel it was possible to eliminate a drag creating nose wheel without risking fuselage damage on application of engine power or maximum use of the wheel brake. This design has resulted in an extremely clean and elegant fuselage with the lowest possible drag. To sum up, the new ASG 32 is designed for the highest level of international competition flying while at the same time offering clubs and recreational pilots an unprecedented level of performance, safety and flying enjoyment.
