The Schleichter ASK 13 is a two-seater glider that was built by Alexander Schleicher. It was and still is widely used for ab-initio training of glider pilots.

You can find more details about this awesome aircraft at Wikipedia.

The FlightGear model of the ASK-13 comes with a basic dual control support. So far this is only a passive passenger view, but yet an instructor can be with his student and help newcomers to discover the joys of soaring by real time piloting advices.

Development status/Issues/Todo


  • texturing is very basic


  • Dual Control is now limited to a simple , passive passenger view.
  • Passenger view has a very limited audio support.
  • FDM is relatively accurate, but could be fine tuned. Testers are welcome !
