Glider: Schweizer  SGS 1-26A  Tail #: N3822A

Description: The Schweizer SGS 1-26 is a United States One-Design, single-seat, mid-wing glider built by Schweizer Aircraft of Elmira, New York. The SGS 1-26 enjoyed a very long production run from its first flight in 1954 until 1979, when production was ended. The 1-26 was replaced in production by the Schweizer SGS 1-36 Sprite. The 1-26 is the most numerous sailplane found in the US. Due to its light weight, it climbs well, stalls benignly, will land in an incredibly short distance (due to the nose skid), and is an excellent glider for transitioning after solo and first cross country attempts.

Glider: Schweizer  SGS 2-33A  Tail #: N234WE

Description: The Schweizer SGS 2-33 is an American two-seat, high-wing, strut-braced, training glider that was built by Schweizer Aircraft of Elmira, New York. From its introduction until the late 1980s, the 2-33 was the main training glider used in North America. Ours was built in 1984 and purchased from the Wings of Eagles Museum.

The 2-33 was designed to replace the Schweizer 2-22, from which it was derived. The aircraft first flew in 1965 and production was started in 1967. Production was completed in 1981.
The glider is exceptionally rugged, and is noted for its low stall speed, docile stalling characteristics, is capable of a very short landing distance, and wide range of weight in each cockpit.
Our glider has blocks that can be rotated in front of the rudder pedals to accomodate shorter legged people.
