Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Raab Doppelraab is a German training glider produced in the early 1950s which proved popular with gliding clubs. A student pilot was accompanied by an instructor in a small space behind him, sharing the control column and with a dual rudder bar. The Doppelraab could be flown solo for later basic training. Fritz Raab, who had designed gliders before World War II, recognised a post-war need for a low cost trainer aircraft. Rather than reproduce the low performance, single seat, open frame primary gliders of the 1930s, he aimed for a design that could act both as a trainer and as a useful gliding club single seater with respectable performance. Simplicicity of rigging was a priority.
