The Schempp Hirth Duo Discus is a high-performance two-seater glider introduced in 1993 by Schempp Hirth to replace the Janus in the range of two-seater competition gliders.
Easy to fly, comfortable, maneuverable, agile and with excellent performance, the Duo-Discus is considered one of the most modern and aesthetically pleasing two-seater gliders in production.
The Club has three in its fleet(D-7613, D-1772, D-9828), owned by CSVVA and exercised at ACAO, available to Members for cross country flights, sport insignia and high performance stages. D-1772 was purchased in Germany in 2018 and is equipped in both the front and rear seats with two LX9000s, among the most advanced on-board computers in the world.
