Glider Workshop

A glider is an aircraft with no engine and it is one of the simplest form of flying. If you want to learn more about flying and the concepts behind it, then this is the perfect platform to start with. This is a small aeroplane without any power source and it flies just by throwing it into the air and comes down with a gliding tendency. This is the first basic step to start Aeromodelling & to understand aerodynamics. The following topics will be covered in this module:
