THE GLIDER IDEA
WEETWATER aviation enthu-
siasts on April 1 will have an
opportunity to see one of thu mo si
novel aviation feats of the year as
Captain Franji Hawks arrives in

What is all this glider idea, any-
way? Lindbergh for the last
month or two has devoted his
time to the study of gliders and the
wise boys have chirped, “That’ll
he the end of his.” It might lie
welt for them to look up records
h;J see that Germany, long a lead-
er tin aviation, is instructing lier
seliool boys in gliding. Adore than
3,0h0 boys of high school age re-
ceived such instructions last year
at the government’s expense.
But what, of it; what’s it going
to do, eventually?
“Gliding activity will bring a '
substantial advance in the import-
ance of aviation,” says Colonel
Lindbergh, “it will form a means I
of training for thousands of pilots
from school age up, and In train-
ing them it will create a much larg-
er mn- ret for power planes. More
pilots mean more men and women
wH8 will use flying as a part of
tlieir daily lives. More flying ac-
together with improved machines, I
plane than the one who has always
had a powerful engine to pull him
out of difficulty.
The soaring glider or sailplaa
differs from the training type in
that it is of lighter construction
and better streamlined. The pres-1
snt American record holder lias a
span of 60 feet, weighs less than
175 pounds and with a 160-pound
pilot has a wing loading of about
one and one-half pounds per square j
foot. Soaring gliders have remain- j
ed aloft on wind velocities of le3s j
than ten miles an hour. Being
light in weight they are compara-
tively safe and easy to fly.
