BECAUSE soaring flight is a peacetime pursuit, sailplane development since 1939 has been negligible. Effort has necessarily been diverted into the design of large military gliders having no soaring ability. With so many out of touch for so long, it may be worth while to look back a little and examine the best of the immediate pre‐war period.
