Condor IV

Condor IV

With the Condor IV, the first post-war high performance two-seater, Alexander Schleicher drew from Heini Dittmars successful designs from before the war. The slightly thicker fuselage in front of the vertical stabilizer and the top and bottom activating airbrakes differentiate the Schleicher Condor from the other Condor IVs.
