The K 8 was derived from the earlier Ka 6 design as a simple single-place sailplane with dive brakes using construction techniques similar to the Schleicher K 7, simplified for amateur construction from kits. Emphasis was on rugged construction, good climbing ability in thermals and good handling characteristics.
Seagull's Ka8B Glider is a beautiful rendition of this timeless piece of sailplane history. With its graceful 3 meter wingspan, optional speed brakes and fixed landing gear, this Ka8B is sure to be an exciting airplane for any sailplane enthusiast.
