Schempp-Hirth Gö-3 Minimoa, with it's amazing silhouette,
is probably one of the most reproduced vintage glider these days, but
still remains a curiosity. It symbolizes the year thirties of the German
soaring. It was under many else, a technological adventure who helped many
pilots to quit the slope soaring and explore the thermal soaring under
clouds and even to wave soaring. It was a breakthrough from experimental
soaring to pure sport flying.
The Minimoa was
one of the first realization of the young company Göppingen
Segelflugzeugbau born in 1935 when Wolf Hirth and Martin Schempp teamed
up. Renamed Schempp-Hirth Segelflugzeugbau after the war, they are today
one of the most famous and largest glider manufacturer.
