Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The experimental Hirth Hi-25 Kria was only the second glider constucted from glass reinforced plastic (GRP). Built in Germany in 1958, it was a single seat, 12 m (39.4 ft) span aircraft. Only one was built; it later flew for several years with the Akaflieg Stuttgart. The first glider with a GRP structure was the Akaflieg Stuttgart Ph nix which flew in November 1957. Wolf Hirth had followed its construction with interest and had hoped to manufacture it. Instead, the Ph nix was produced by B lkow and Hirth built his own design, the Hi-25 Kria, using the construction methods developed for the Ph nix.show more
