PH-1006 is owned by our gliding club ZC Flevo at Biddinghuizen since February 1994. The Junior is a typical club glider with its glide ratio of 1:35. It is not intended for competition work, but it is typically used as the first single-seat type for solo-pilots and for local (fun) flying.
I can assure you it is a nice plane to fly with its very docile flight characteristics. I believe 'Polish glider' is a typical US expression for a bad plane, but this is totally undeserved for the Junior! I have made hundreds of starts with this type and have spent many very pleasant hours flying it."
