Welcome to The Un-Official Schleichers ASW 15 (B) Glider Information Portal.

This site is created to share information which can help owners and pilots preserve and safely fly the ASW-15 or ASW-15B glider. To collect as much data as possible, this site is relying upon the soaring community to provide information! All gathered information can be found in the ASW15 forum. You are welcome to register and join a discussion.

An asw-15b


The ASW 15 standard Class single-seater was designed by Dipl-Ing Gerhard Waibel, who had been responsible for the ASW-12, and is of glassfibre/foam sandwich construction. It was build in the glider factory of Alexander Schleicher (AS) in Poppenhausen, Germany.
It first flew in prototype form in April 1968, a total of 447 ASW 15s of all versions had been built by January 1977, and production has now ended.

Characteristic for the ASW 15 is the all-moving tailplane set low on the fin, and the shoulder wings have a glassfibre roving spar with the very effective Schlempp-hirth air brakes.

The type made its competition debut at the 1968 World Championships at Lezno in Poland, when an ASW 15 by Hans-Werner Grosse of Germany came 10th in the Standard Class.

So sign up now and become a member to get more out of your 'ASW 15'! And of course, fans are also welcome to sign as a member too.

Hi lucky ASW15-pilots,

I'm preparing 'my' 15 for a competition and was wondering where the best c.g. location is. Because nothing is given in the flight manual and I also couldn't find some...

Hi folks,
