Gross Sky Ghost

grosssky


The third design of Akaflieg Darmstadt graduate Frank Gross, following the Akron Condor and the Baker McMillen Cader, the Sky Ghost was relatively advanced for its time. A two-place dual control glider was a relative novelty when most training was accomplished by the solo method of ground slides graduating to low hops, high hops and patterns. It had a single fixed main wheel, with a two wheel gear as an option. Gross made the first multi-place flight in the U.S. of over two hours in the Sky Ghost. An example is in the National Soaring Museum.
