The community is volunteer operated and maintained with the soaring community providing and supporting all the information we contain! The main forum can be found in the header tabs above or click here: ASW15 forum. You are more than welcome to register and join a discussion whether you fly one, are about to buy one or just ASW15 curious.

An ASW-15(B)

The ASW 15 Family

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.
