Altair Glider Sailplane - The Altair glider

Australian Gliding Museum, Parwan

The Altair glider is a single place 18m span cantilever wing glider constructed from spruce and aircraft plywood. The laminar flow wing is completely covered in plywood with a ply balsa sandwich for the leading edge and the airbrakes are unique being located in the trailing edge of the wings. All these features were done in an effort to retain laminar flow over the wing and achieve a high performance.

Historical information

The glider was built between January 1956 and November 1958 with first flight on 20 December 1958. After a few flights the cockpit was lengthened and the glider flown by Cliff Gurr and Ron Adair to complete their FAI Gold C badges. Cliff set an Australian record for an out and return flight (between Gawler and Renmark) of 230 miles (368 km) in 1961. The glider was flown by only Ron and Cliff until Mervyn Waghorn joined Ron to fly in the National Championships at Waikerie in [date?] Ron took the glider to Sydney but left it in the care of Dave Rees, Doug Vanstan, Laurie Harrison, John Harsley and Haydn Dunn of the Geelong Gliding Club while he went overseas. Doug fitted a new canopy and rebuilt the aileron bellcranks to improve their operation. When Alan Patching returned from his overseas stint the glider was flown in competitions and at vintage rallies. On 31 March 1987 Alan purchased the glider from Ron for the sum of one shilling and named the owners as himself, Doug Vanstan and Ian Patching.

Significance

The glider is the only 18m machine to have been either designed or built in Australia.

Inscriptions & Markings

The wings, empennage and top of the fuselage are painted white with the rest of the fuselage red. The word ‘Altair’ appears on both sides at the top of the fin.
