    A very versatile aircraft, suitable for a wide range of flying tasks. The ASK 21 is the first glider for most flight students and may accompany them up to the first cross-country or competition flights. Robustness, high quality production and low maintenance together make it an aircraft for everybody, made to fly every day while keeping its value along the years.

    Impossible to enter a spin, even on purpose, its handling is easy in every situation and the huge landing gear is capable of absorbing heavy landings.
