The Aloha Spirit is an ASK-21, manufactured by Alexander Schleicher in Germany. The Schleicher Company is the oldest glider company in the world, producing gliders since 1929. We use this craft for aerobatic demonstration flights.
Schweizer Aircraft Corporation is the oldest family-run aircraft company in the U.S. They sold their first glider in 1937. The Schweizer 2-32, which went into production in 1962, is famous world-wide for being the only glider that carry three people, the pilot and two passengers.
Originally designed to carry two people sitting in tandem, front and back seats, the aircraft was actually wide enough to accommodate two average-size people in the back seat. And, the FAA approved it to carry two passengers and a pilot.
