Reghin RG-5 Pescarus
The RG-4 Pionier primary trainer was followed by the RG-5 Pescarus single-seater which made its first flight on 8 September 1957. It went into production the following year, a total of 26 being delivered to Romanian gliding clubs. It is a cantilever mid-wing monoplane of all-wood construction with a rather large two-piece cockpit canopy; the single-spar wing has a plywood leading edge torsion box and is covered with ply and fabric. DPS air brakes are fitted and there are no flaps. The wooden fuselage has plywood stressed skin covering, the landing gear consisting of a monowheel, a front skid under the forward fuselage and a tail bumper. The cantilever wooden tail unit is also ply- and fabric covered.
