The classic Slingsby T7 Kirby Cadet first flew in 1935 and was used by the Royal Air Force as a training glider for their air cadet program.

We are pleased to present this classic glider in a 100" design suitable for aerotow or slope soaring. Our kitset includes an extensive range of fibreglass fittings to help with hookup of the functional wing struts, as well as two different dihedral braces to allow you to build the kitset with a scale dihedral of zero degrees, or 1.5 degrees dihedral.

Details of a working tow release for aerotowing are also shown on the plan.

Our laser cut short kits are held in stock ready for prompt shipping, and we ship locally or worldwide, with worldwide delivery generally between 7 to 21 days. See the bottom of the page for the option to add in a wood completion pack to give you all the wood you need to complete the short kit. All prices are in NZ Dollars.
