THE production of a glider presents problems that are similar in many respects to those found in the production of any other type of aircraft. The position in the case of the glider is simplified by the absence of such parts as the engine and the various equipment associated with it, and also the elaborate undercarriage installation. It is, however, complicated by the relatively large overall size of the aircraft as compared with an equivalent power machine.
