Sailplane Market: Introduction

A sailplane is a type of a glider aircraft generally used in the sports and leisure activity. The sports of flying sailplane is referred to as soaring. Sailplane is an aerodynamically designed aircraft developed with a high lift-to-drag ratio. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, sailplane is defined as a heavier-than-air fixed-wing aircraft which is supported by the dynamic reaction of the air against its lifting surfaces during flight, and is not principally dependent on an engine.  A sailplane is designed to fly and gain altitude from the natural force such as thermal and ridge lift. Sailplanes are also equipped with engines to sustain and enable the level flight in area of descending air flow. The overall performance of the sailplane primarily depends on the various design parameters such as aerodynamic efficiency, flight mechanics, material used, aircraft structure, etc. Sailplanes are generally made from made of lightweight high strength materials such as carbon fiber or glass fiber. Sailplanes are predominantly used in the sports and leisure activity and military applications. In military sailplane are used train cadets the fundamentals of flights. Further, the advancement in computational methods and development of modern aerodynamic concept are some of the key factors aiding sailplane manufacturers to improve overall performance and increasing the lift to drag ratio.
