Comment:
The Sagitta first flew in 1961. It has an all- wood primary with fabric cover, and was the first Standard design to appear from the Netherlands. The main wheel is fixed and the airbrakes operate from both top and bottom surfaces of the wing. All control surfaces connect automatically on assembly. The canopy slides backward and can be fixed open in flight at several positions. ATC
