Albatross Sails ASG-20
 
 Albatross-ASG20-01
 
The ASG-20 was originally designed in 1975 to fill the need for a safer, more docile, beginner/intermediate glider. The final design meeting the criteria. The ASG-20 was available with an optional modification kit, which essentially soups up the -20, noticeably increasing the L/D while not adversely affecting the slow speed or stall characteristics. The modification kit includes a triple wing strut assembly to provide the negative load strength of the ASG-21.
 
With or without the mod kit, the -20 fits the Standard Class for competition.
 
Because the sail is not cambered like the ASG-21, a wide choice of colours was available, although Albatros recommends white cloth. Standard with the sail were applied leading edge sleeves and an applied keel pocket in the pilot’s choice of colour.
 
Options such as colour, split panels, and insert work were also available, as well as the modification kit.
 
It was an (at the time) intermediate glider with remarkably high performance. David Dilworth gained a 2nd place in Bodo Midnight Sol Cup in 1977 - and set a Scandanavian distance record with the ASG 20 (15+ km along the front of Kaiservarden).
