The AS 33 flies

The new 18m sailpane makes its first flight at Huhnrain

While in large parts of Germany the weather was cloudy and somewhat gloomy, St. Peter provided a sunny window over the Rhön for the first AS 33 flight.  But it wasn’t just the sun which shone brightly – but the faces of everyone present were equally bright with joy about the highly successful event.

At around 11:30 a.m. local time the AS 33 lifted off for the first time. Company head Uli Kremer was at the controls and he thoroughly checked everything out including the retriever motor with the electric starter.

AS 33 – Maiden Flight is within reach

First photo shooting with the complete aircraft

In the last few weeks there wasn’t so much news about our new AS 33. The reason for this was the ground vibration test, which was performed successfully by an external institution in the last three weeks.

Besides the wing load test, which we already passed last spring, the ground vibration test is one of the most important tests on the way to the EASA certification.

It is very important for us to offer our customers a glider, which can achieve the final EASA certification as soon as possible after the maiden flight. That is why we decided to pass this important but also time-consuming test before the eagerly awaited maiden flight of our brand new AS 33.
