Comment:
The ASK-13 two-place tandem trainer was a development of the earlier Ka-7. The performance improvement was marginal, but the mid-wing design and improved canopy made for much better pilot visibility. The landing wheel is fixed and sprung with rubber cones, and the ship is fitted with airbrakes. In later models, a nosewheel was substituted for the skid. After Schleicher ceased production, the sailplane has been license-built by Jubi GmbH of Oerlinghausen, Germany. ATC
