Discus CS

The Discus CS  is the club's premier single-seat glider, and is available for solo pilots to fly after developing their skills in the club's SZD Junior.

The Discus is a capable cross-country machine, with excellent glide performance, a comfortable cockpit, and modern instrumentation. Thanks to its good maneuverability and sturdy construction, it is also capable of basic aerobatics.

Despite its high performance, the Discus is a safe and predictable aircraft, making it a favourite among the club's intermediate and advanced pilots alike.
