We proudly announce a new generation Mylar seals

With the Mylar tapes and sealing kits we provided our customers an easy possibility to improve the performance and handling characteristics of their aircraft.

These options we developed and improved now for over 30 years to meet the requirements of the market and technology to set new standards. And now we proceed this tradition with our new super white Mylar which matches perfectly the color of gliders and motor gliders with as well as the advantage of better bonding.

30th anniversary of Glasfaser Flugzeug-Service located in Grabenstetten


On the occasion of our 30th anniversary located in Grabenstetten it was a great pleasure to welcome friends, companions, favorors, buisness partners, fly buddies and our staff including their families. On 21st November 2015 they came from the United States, Canada, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland and from all over Germany to celebrate this anniversary with us.
One of the highlights of the day was the opening of a small „Glasflügel gallery“. The idea of a meeting place within a „historical“ environment arose a couple of months before when we were forced to renovate the adjoining building due to a grave water damage. The result is a small museum displaying exhibits and technical documents as well as a meeting area.

Special thanks go to all helping hands, consultants and decorators as well as our staff. Since anniversaries like this stand and fall with the catering, we made a good catch by choosing Hahn Catering.

It was a day of encounters and interesting talks and company directors of several aircraft manufacturers, constructors, suppliers, consultants, former employees and many friends were present.

   

The senior partner warmly welcomed the guests with a brief review and outlook and opened the museum which displays the history of Glasflügel as well as the transition into Glasfaser-Flugzeug-Service GmbH in 1982. He highly appreciated his family without whom those development wouldn’t be possible. Finally, he wished all guests a great and interesting time in Grabenstetten.



Following the banquet, all guests were able to have a look at the company premises or ask detailed questions. After enjoying coffee and cake the day slowly got to its end since some of our guests had a long way home and the first snow started to fall.

We are sure, our guests enjoyed this day as well as we did. Once again, we want to thank all our guests for their attendence, the lovely gifts and this successful day. Thanks a lot!

21 July 2009 Nimeta project – the world’s largest single-seated motor glider.

After 2 years development and construction the time has come: The maiden flight of the currently largest single-seated motor glider took place on 21 July 2009.

The ordering party Bruno Gantenbrink (YY) insisted to make the first flight of this project initiated and financed by his own.

Nimeta is a motor glider with a strongly modified fuselage and elevator Nimbus 4 as well as Eta wings.

With this project we realized Bruno Gantenbrink’s dream of a single-seated Eta. The challenge of this project consisted in uniting the two motor glider types due to the entirely different mechanics of wings and fuselage. Furthermore, we have redesigned the fillet wing fuselage and enlarged the fin by 20 percent.

The engine system has been completely adopted from Ventus/Nimbus and has been set by SHK.

After the today’s two hours maiden flight Bruno Gantenbrink was highly pleased with the quality of his new airplane.

We wish Bruno many successful flights!

February 2008 - ETA Tuning

Currently we prepare Hans-Werner Grosses' ETA glider (works number 1) for the new gliding season. Besides the usual maintenance and polishing works we will carry out some small aerodynamical refinements.

eta-gierspoiler-1-k.jpg (26145 Byte)In addition, the last year constructed yaw spoiler in the new outer wing with Maughmer winglet has been revised and newly set. This yaw spoiler works based on the principle of the top and bottom surface Schempp-Hirth type airbrakes. The yaw spoiler is electric powered and supports the too little effect of the yaw rudder. After testing for almost one year Hans-Werner Grosse is highly pleased with the renewed support of the yaw rudder and which he would not want to miss.

extra 300sr-k.jpg (28790 Byte)Wing molds for Extra EA300 SR

Besides several other molds in 2007 we produced the wing molds for Walter Extras' newest aircraft namely Extra EA300 SR. This aircraft, especially produced for the motor sports competition Red Bull Air Race, originates from the single-seated EA 300 S. However, the wings have been a complete new construction. Using our milling technology we were able to produce the negative molds for wings, spar, fins and aileron within a few weeks. The high-precision molds guarantee to keep the aerodynamical basic layout as well as to reduce the weight through its high accuracy of fit. That all that effort pays off has been well demonstrated by Nicolas Ivanoff at the last race in 2007 in Perth.

 


concordia1-k.jpg (50610 Byte)Wing molds for Concordia project

As already mentioned in several journals, we are also involved in the Concordia project. Accordingly, the complete wing molds have been produced on our milling machine. After putting together and surface sealing the molds were shipped to Dick Butler to Tennessee. In the meantime the wing frames have been made over there. At the moment the spar bars are being produced.
