Wills Wings Harrier
The 1981 Wills Wings Harrier was for novice pilots. It was built in three models: 147, 177, and 187.
The Harrier was a great turning glider. Easy to launch and land with excellent energy retention for a single surface glider. It had great static balance, very light handling, a very good sink rate and was one of the best scracth soaring gliders of all time. It was difficult to land as flare timing was critical. The Harrier 2 was supposed to land easier but was tough. The Harrier 177 was said to “climb on a beer fart. And turn? Power steering. But never, not once, landed well”.
