First Schempp-Hirth Arcus glider assembled in China for historic flight

A Schempp-Hirth Arcus M glider was assembled in Beijing on Friday.

Transported from Germany, it’s the first such glider that has arrived in China.

The glider will make its maiden flight in Asia at the end of this month or early next month, taking to the sky in Zhangye City, SW China’s Gansu Province.

It’s expected to fly 700 km along the Silk Road Economic Belt, a land-based initiative aimed at boosting trade and investment in Eurasia.
