Reinhard Cumulus

rein-cumulus


The Cumulus, which first flew in 1951, incorporated a wing very similar to that of the pre-World War II Schneider Grunau Baby with a new fuselage design reminiscent of the pod and boom Bowlus Baby Albatross. It was designed by Gerharf Reinhard with homebuilders in mind. Early models used a skid for takeoff and landing, while later models incorporated a small main wheel. The glider is constructed with wood wings and steel tube fuselage; both fabric covered.

Wing span: 13.57 m / 44.5 ft
Empty Weight: 159 kg / 350 lb.

L/D max: 19
