  1. The Dunstable Sailplane Company

    Use British English date August 2011 Use dmy dates date August 2011 The Dunstable Sailplane Company was established in 1934 by W.L. Manuel and C.H. Latimer Needham to design, manufacture and repair gliders from its workshop at Barton Le Clay Airfield in Bedfordshire . The Dunstable Kestrel was manufactured by the company from designs by W.L. Manuel in 1935 production was limited to one sailplane with a British Gliding Association id of G221. Records comment that G221 was purchased by a trainee pilot who was still in his early stages of training with a primary glider. This Dunstable Kestrel passed to the Norfolk & Norwich Aero Club and crashed in 1938, however W.L. Manuel drew up plans for home builders which were offered for sale at the cost of 6. 6s. W.E. Godson purchased a set of plans and built a second British Kestrel whilst three more Kestrels were built in Australia by R. New, R. Basillie and the last by P. Pratt. Whilst no remains exist of the British built aircraft all three Australian built ones are in museums. W. L.

As the head of the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt f r Segelflug DFS German Research Institute for Sailplane Flight at Darmstadt in the years before World War II , he was responsible for a number of highly successful designs, including the DFS Rh nsperber , DFS Rh nadler , DFS Habicht , DFS Weihe , DFS Kranich , and the DFS 230 assault glider. The DFS Olympia Meise was selected in 1939 as the glider for the 1940 Summer Olympics , but the games were cancelled. The design was taken up after the war and produced in large numbers in the UK by Elliotts of Newbury , in France by Nord Aviation , in Spain and in Czechoslovakia. When the prohibition on German aviation under the Allied occupation ended in 1951, Jacobs designed and marketed an updated version of the Kranich. He authored a seminal work on sailplane design, Werkstatt Praxis f r den Bau von Gleit und Segelflugzeugen Workshop Practice for the Construction of Gliders and Sailplanes .

    Unreferenced date December 2009 Georges Abrial 1898, Paris &ndash 1970, Vauville, Manche was an early France French aerodynamics aerodynamicist . After graduating from the St Cyr Aeronautical Institute he worked for Pierre Levasseur aircraft builder Levasseur Levasseur Abrial A 1 and did some pioneering work into tailless aircraft . He designed several Glider aircraft gliders during the 1920s before turning to lecturing the following decade, when he also became influential in the French Lift soaring soaring movement. Abrial stopped designing new aircraft after 1932 when he abandoned his A 12 project. He was more attracted by instructorship and educational methods and played an important role in the development of soaring in France during the 1930s. After World War II , he was still active in promoting soaring in France and in French Africa. In 1954 he came back to the design of tailless aircraft, with the A 13 Buse project. But this glider was never built.
