DG-808C Competition

For many years our DG-808C Competition has set the pattern for self-launching sailplanes. Aircraft of the DG-800 series are the world’s most produced auxiliary powered 18m ships. Our DG-808C Competition is the latest version of all self-launching DG-800. In its design decades of experience in the construction of self-launching sailplanes are accumulated.

More information about the DG-808C Competition is available on demand.
