Schrederﾒs first sailplane, the HP (for ﾑHigh
Performanceﾒ) 7, first flew in 1957 and was
destroyed in an aerotowing accident right after
the 1957 U.S. Nationals. Schreder then built the
improved HP-8 in 1958 and won the Nationals with
it in that year again in 1960. He set world
records with it in all three speed categories in
1959, and two of these were raised again by the
same ship flown by George Moffat. The solo
example belongs to the National Soaring Museum.
