The Høgslund/Traugott-Olsen 2G is a training glider by the Danish designers Knud Høgslund and Frits Traugott-Olsen.

History

The Høgslund/Traugott-Olsen 2G is one of the few two-seat school gliders. Nine examples of this very simple, wooden aircraft were built between 1946 and 1950. Since two of them are still airworthy today, the aircraft is a popular guest at classic car meetings.[1]

Construction

The 2G is a very simple glider with a two-piece wing structure of Edmund-Schneider airfoil without a tension tower, supported by V-braces. The tailplane consists of a narrow fabric-covered tailplane girder in lattice construction with a strutted tailplane equipped with a trim tab.[1]
