AHRENS AR 124
Design of this single-seat sailplane began in 1974, and the first flight of the prototype was that same year. The
cantilevered mid-wing has a constant chord with ailerons and upper-surface spoilers but no tabs or flaps.
The fuselage is all-aluminum with a flush-riveted skin, and the swept T-tail has a one-piece elevator. One unsprung nosewheel with a disc brake and a tailwheel comprise the landing gear. Seating is for one pilot under
a molded one-piece canopy.
