Old timer flying

I had the opportunity to fly some old timer sailplane from APPARAT group. this was a big time for me, as I have mainly flown fiber ships !

First was french Breguet 905 "Fauvette". This is a V-tail, 15m wooden sailplane. Very light to handle, the V-tail mixer is at first surprising, but once used to it you hardly notice it !

Then I had the chance to fly the Slingsby T-21 with Julien. This is a british side-by-side twin seater. Aerotowing is a big story, as you fly far too quickly for this old lady ! Once free, flying at 60kph it is much more bearable to have the head out !

Nice souvenir !
