Sailplane and Sky

Every sailplane that gets built at Schempp-Hirth is unique and is individually configured and built for each customer.

in addition to a variety of equipment options differing from one sailplane type to another, Schempp-Hirth offers a special solution for pilots with waking impediment, extra safety options and a variety of motorization options with at least one for each glider type we build.


For each individual sailplane model, you can find an exhaustive list of equipment options and extras for this model at the bottom of that models page. This list will also provide information about which equipment is standard for the desired model and which equipment can be ordered as a chargeable extra.

The same list reveals whether an equipment option can be retrofitted for your sailplane model or are only available if they are ordered when the sailplane gets built..
