About This File

FS98 Schleicher Ka 6E Sailpane. 1965 shoulder-wing sailplane constructed by Alexander Schleicher in Poppenhausen, designed by Rudolf Kaiser. It was the ultimate development of the Ka6 Series, with a more aerodynamic fuselage, a mono-wheel undercarriage and a longer cabin, being one of the most successful sailplanes in the time of wood and spruce construction with fabric covering. It had a sink rate of 122 fpm @ 37 kt, and a large number are still flying. A Ka6E won the highest score at the 1965 U.S. Nationals, and another won the 1967 Barringer long-distance trophy. The flight dynamics in two .air files implement two possibilities for take-off by pressing F4: The default .air file provides a glider-winch launch to 2200 feet above ground level, and an extra .air file provides aero-tow take-off to 4000 feet. This is achieved by means of a conveniently adjusted silent jet-engine with 1 USG of fuel. Textures by Udo Entenmann. By Stephan Scholz.
