Article publication date: 1 June 1953
THE Slingsby Sky is a British designed high‐performance sailplane and is intended for cross‐country and competition flying. The prototype Sky first flew in the summer of 1950 and since that time the design has been put into limited production. The Sky has obtained several notable successes in competition flying, the most recent of which was the 1952 International Gliding Contests in Spain, where Sky's took the first, third and fourth places; the six machines which completed the contest all being placed in the first fourteen out of a total entry of forty.
