Briegleb
 
Sailplane Corporation of America
 
 
One of the USA's pioneer sailplane designers, William G. Briegleb built and flew his first glider in 1928, and later formed the Sailplane Corporation of America to market gliders of his own design. Just before World War 2 he produced the BG 6 and BG 7 strut-braced high wing designs with fabric-covered steel fuselages,; a few of these were used by the USAAF for training as well as by private owners and clubs. Recently Mr Briegleb's firm re-introduced construction of the BG 6 and BG 7 as a plans-only service to homebuilders, and by the beginning of 1978 59 sets of BG 6 plans and 29 sets of the BG 7 had been sold.
