After the war, only a couple of gliders survived. One of them was repaired and started
flying under the nickname "Glaraki" (young sea-gull). Gliding first reappeared
in Athens as a air-scout activity, later as "gliding corps"
and finaly as the "Athens Gliding Club".
Glider "Glaros" (sea-gull) was built in Athens by G.Peschke (his own design) and was used extensively for training new glider pilots.
Some gliding camps have been organized with minimal success.

Angeliki Panagiotou on the "Glaraki". Note the condition of the leading edge and the child passing behind the glider bare-footed. Those were poor years indeed.
"Glaraki" passes over us.

Boy scouts with king Paul in 1947. Using the neckerchief as a head cover is not standard practice. It was probably a very hot June.
In 1950 A.Audis has built in the KEA factory a 3/4 scale Zoegling, to be offered by the Air Force to the would be king Constantin. This photo of the 60ies shows Constantin with the president of the Royal Aeroclub in front of his 1950 picture.
The air scouts. Many photos, but few flights. Standing on the right A.Audis.
