Abrial A-12 Bagoas

a12

Georges Abrials main interest was soaring, so he decided to design a tailless glider: the A-12. After testing successfully a scale model at the St Cyr wind tunnel, he built the full-size prototype. This glider had an aspect ratio of 6 to 1. During the development of this new glider, in 1932, Georges Abrial had to face so much technical difficulties that he decided to give up the project. He christened his project "Bagoas", the name of a famous Persian poisoner.
