Only one 2-25 was built and was flown in the 1954 World Championships at Champhill, England and 1956 World Championships at St. Yan, France in the multiplace category. Stan Smith and R.Kidder fininished 3rd in 1954, and Kempes Trager and Gene Miller were 4th in 1956. It has triple spoilers (2 on top, 1 on bottom of each wing). The sole example was donated to the soaring program at the U.S. Air Force Academy and later presented to the National Soaring Museum. It is presently on loan to the U.S. Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson FB, Dayton, OH.
