Comment:
The LP-46 13.56 m. / 44.5 ft. span prototype for the LP-49 made its initial flight in 1966. The LP-49 is a Standard Class design that features all-metal laminar flow wings and tail surfaces, a semi-monocoque fiberglass fuselage, a shock- strutted retractable landing gear with an internal wheel well door, a retractable and swiveling tailwheel, an automatic aileron and dive-brake control hookup and internal control- surface counterweights. The ship is approved for spins, loops and wing-over, and has been static tested to 12 g. The LP-49 was sold in both kit form and as a complete, ready-to-fly sailplane. ATC.
