Preface The purpose of the Basic Glider Criteria Handbook is to provide individual glider designers, the glider industry, and glider operating organizations with guidance material that augments the glider airworthiness certification standards specified in Civil Air Regulation Part 5. Acceptable methods of showing compliance with the standards are presented as compliance suggestions. Considerable material regarding common practices of construction and fabrication has been included primarily for the information of novice builders and designers, and should not be considered as the only satisfactory practices.

This 1962 edition incorporates minor revisions and corrections dealing mainly with definitions of technical terms and symbols. The content of the handbook remains unchanged.

The Basic Glider Criteria Handbook was prepared in the Federal Aviation Agency, Flight Standards Service, by personnel of the Engineering and Manufacturing Division. Acknowledgement is extended to the Soaring Society of America for their cooperation and advice.
