Hi All,

I've just bought a 15B, a lovely glider and very nice to fly.

I too am of the view that a side hinged canopy will be very useful when getting ready to launch and exiting the glider on landing and more importantly safety of the canopy.

Since all the messages etc. in this thread are 14yrs old I wonder if anyone has any recent info on hinging the canopy, certification etc..
