The H101 Salto is one of the most impressive aerobatic gliders ever built. It's extremely manoeuvrable and tolerates g-loads from +7g to -5g. In the early 70ties, the fibreglass technology of H101 Salto was considered a pioneering achievement, as it delivers the mechanical strength of the aircraft (considered "unkaputtbar" in the air).
|Ours is a original SALTO built in 1974 (S/N 38) by Start + Flug GmbH in Saulgau. The aircraft underwent a complete overhaul in 1993; and once Stevie started taking care of the old lady, it looks prettier than ever before.|
We perform professional aerobatic displays with our small H 101 Salto. We don't do inverted low paths a few feet above the runway, though. Our idea of glider aerobatics is to demonstrate the harmony and beauty of silent flying.
|If you are interested in our performance for your airshow or airfield event, just send us an email. At any rate, we always enjoy getting to know new friends of aerobatics.|
|Alltogether, 72 machines of this type were built. Only one mystery remains unsolved (at least in the german speaking aerobatic scene): Is the H101 Salto correctly addressed as a "he" or as a "she"? We have no doubts at all, however: Ours is a lady!|
