The 2-32 was once the world’s highest- performance production multi-seater and has been prolific record-setter. In the late 1960’s and through the 1970’s the design held many world and national records for speed over 100, 300 and 500 km courses, as well as a variety of distance, out-and-return and altitude records for both men and women. It gained the feminine multi-place world and national records for absolute altitude and altitude gain (10.809 m./ 35.463 ft. and 7.8481 m./ 24.545 ft.) st by Babbs Nutt at Black Forest, CO in 1975. It is widely used for the commercial ‘rider’ business with the facility of carrying two relative light and friendly passengers on the bench rear seat. The design features airbrakes and an all-moving horizontal tail with anti-balance tab. The first 2-32, serial 001, belongs to the National Soaring Museum. ATC
