Test flight Antares 18T at Birrfeld Airport LSZF

Mr Axel Lange and Mr Hofmann came with an Antares 18T to Birrfeld for the day. Thanks a lot for this opportunity to fly an Antares 18T (w/o turbo installed that will only be certified for next summer).

I never imagined that glider flying could be like this!!! Such a fine piece of innovative and successful engineering: highest performance flown like a beginners plane. Good bey to the idea that a race plane has to be dangerous and difficult to handle like a race horse (and I have had that experience). It was a bit like flying for the first time.

What hit me most was that Mr Lange told me that 98% of this plane has never been changed since it was conceived in the engineers heads and the computer. How is this possible?
