ES50 CLUB “TWO-SEATER”

Donated by:  Bill Riley

Country of Origin - Design: Australia

Country of Origin - Manufacture: Australia

Designer: E. Schneider & Sons

Constructor: E, Schneider & Sons Pty. Ltd

Year of Manufacture: 1953

Only one of these was built in an effort to fulfill a need for a good two seater in Australia.

Not much is known about the early history of the Club two seater but from the logbook the following flying is recorded:

  • Renmark Gliding Club:  352 Hrs  4353 flights
  • Millicent Gliding Club:
  • Corangamite Soaring:   32 Hrs     642 flights
  • Sydney Tech College:    5 Hrs       84 flights

The Club two seater has been restored to display condition and awaits finish painting.

We are indebted to Bill Riley for saving this unique Australian glider.
