The Super Blanik, which first flew in 1988, is a development of the L 13 Blanik, but without flaps. It has a T-tail, DFS type airbrakes and a swiveling tail wheel. It retains the semi- retractable shock absorbed main wheel of the L 13. The opening part of the cockpit canopy is in two pieces, the front cockpit cover opening sideways and the rear moving up and back over the center fuselage. Wingtip extensions are optional, increasing the span to 18.2 m./ 59.7 ft., however, aerobatics are only permitted when the extensions are not fitted. ATC
