Start & Flug H-121 Globetrotter / Schulmeister



Designed by Walter Stender and Ursula Hanle and originally known as the Schulmeister, this side-by-side two-seater training sailplane first flew in prototype form on 28 July 1977, and production began in March 1978. The Globetrotter is a cantilever mid-wing monoplane of 17m span with a T-tail, and mainly of glassfibre reinforced plastic construction. The wings have an Eppler E 603 aerofoil section and are swept forward 2° 30'; air brakes are fitted in the upper surfaces, and there is provision for water ballast. Landing gear consists of a non-retractable monowheel and tailwheel, and the two pilots sit under a one-piece canopy that slides forward to open over the tip of the nose.
Only one was built.
