A publications in Greek language
After printing the "Air sports" news-letter for many years, we had in 1995 enough
material for a directory of all the sailplanes that have been used in Greece.
The "Air sports" news-letter was first published by K. Bousias and C.Pikros in 1986 and is still printed today (2013). It covers the interests of Soaring, Hang Gliding and Paragliding. It is not sold, but just mailed to interested friends of our choice.
The directory is in Greek language, but contains the three-view drawings and the
specifications of the sailplanes in the original language of the sources. In the last page
there is a list of all the sailplanes that have been registered in Greece after the war.
They are not many (about 50 sailplanes for the 60 year passed), but we had great fun in
them. Sailplanes flying in Greece with foreign registration are not included in this list.
Greek-speakers can donwload the vol. 26-27 of the magazine in .pdf format from the site www.aerodata.gr
For non-Greek-speakers here is a list of the sailplanes. Sailplanes flying in Greece
with foreign registration are not included.
Registration numbers were given to Greek sailplanes after about 1955.
During the previous period 1932-1955 about 40 gliders have been flying in Greece without registration numbers.
