DG-1001Club  neo  – The state-of-the-art Trainer
The Next Generation Training Double-Seater

The DG1001Club neo is the ideal trainer for clubs. It’s the most modern training aircraft on the market, suitable for basic as well as advanced training. With 18m wingspan and new “neo” winglets, the flight characteristics leave nothing to be desired. Excellent low-speed and stall characteristics allow the pilot to keep control of the aircraft at all times.  An important factor, especially in clubs and flight schools.

Training at the highest level

Training is at the heart of every club.  It sets the course for successful training as a glider pilot.

With the DG1001Club neo you get the perfect aircraft to successfully accompany your students from the first start to the license and beyond.

Flying – easy and safe

The neo winglets of the DG1001Club were specially developed for training.  The handling is therefore more harmonious and the stall characteristics are very good-natured, as desired for a training two-seater.  Coupled with the performance, which is excellent for training aircraft, every take-off is used effectively and learning successes come quickly.

slow flight:
With the center of gravity forward, the DG1001Club neo can be kept stable in deep stall.   If you gradually lower the center of gravity with the help of the trimming weights, the tendency to tip over slowly increases.   However, the aircraft remains easily controllable over the entire center of gravity range and quickly ends the stalled flight condition when the stick is released.

If you place the center of gravity in the rear area using the trim weights, you can use the DG1001Club neo excellently for spin training.   The aircraft can be launched and exited using standard procedures and exhibits the behavior of modern plastic aircraft.

Unlike older generation aircraft, modern plastic aircraft spin steeply and flatly alternately.   A property that cannot be simulated with old mixed or wooden training two-seaters.   With the DG1001Club neo, the students are specifically prepared for the flight behavior of modern aircraft.

Performance :
The flight performance at 18m is comparable to that of old standard class aircraft.   Thus, the aircraft is also ideal for cross-country flights.

Flexibility is The Key

DG1001Club neo forms the cornerstone of the DG1001 family.  Various options make the aircraft more flexible than any other.  Whether wingspan, undercarriage, water ballast or even propulsion.  With the DG1001 modular system, we can  adapt the aircraft to  your needs.


Thanks to the separation point included as standard, the DG1001Club neo can be flown with different wingspans.

  • In the basic version, the DG1001Club neo is delivered with a wingspan of 18m and neo winglets.   Ideal for training and pleasure flights
  • With a wingspan of 17.2m, the DG1001 becomes an aerobatic machine.   It is even suitable for figures of the Cat.   A approved, which makes it not only ideal for aerobatic training, but also enables the pilot to fly advanced programs and figures
  • The new 20m neo outer wings can also be attached.   The performance increases significantly and XC pilots can enjoy a 20m double seater!   We recommend this option in connection with a retractable landing gear and, if necessary, a water ballast system in order to fully utilize the advantages of the 20m ends.

chassis variants
The standard fixed landing gear is perfect for clubs and flight schools looking for a simple, robust trainer aircraft.   If the aircraft is to fulfill other roles in addition to training, a retractable landing gear can be installed as an alternative.   This option can also be retrofitted to DG.   The mechanical retractable landing gear is identical in height and position to the fixed landing gear.   The nose wheel is also retained.   An ideal combination for club use.  

if required, we can prepare your aircraft for the installation of an FES or a turbo system.   Of course, the drive can also be installed from the outset.   An interesting aspect also in terms of value retention.

water ballast
In order to keep the aircraft as simple and inexpensive as possible, we have not installed water ballast.   For customers who later want to be able to retrofit a water ballast system, we offer a corresponding preparation.   Alternatively, the system can also be installed from the start. 

Set the right focus!

The trim weight boxes in the front cockpit and the trim box in the fin offer maximum flexibility when choosing the center of gravity.  Light and heavy pilots alike can customize the aircraft to suit their needs, and as an instructor you get a rare opportunity to demonstrate the impact of CG in a simple way.

Is everything too complicated, time-consuming or dangerous?   Find out here why this is not the case...

Trim weights in the cockpit are standard on all gliders.  But the possibility of balancing the payload in the cockpit with weights in the fin is not that widespread.   Often these weights are only used to perform spin exercises.   But in the DG1001 family, the center of gravity can be adjusted for all flight conditions. 

For many, however, the use of weights is too cumbersome or annoying.   The easiest way to do this is to just leave the box empty.   You can use the trim box,   but you don't have to   .   It is therefore not necessary to adjust the weights before each start.   As with other training two-seaters, you then fly with a top-heavy center of gravity.

To make choosing the correct center of gravity as easy as possible, each aircraft is supplied with a trim table, which makes it very easy to determine the correct number of trim weights. 

A simple way is to put the trim weights in the fin in the morning for the lightest pilot combination.   Only in the evening should you then remove the trim weights for the next day.

Only for spinning and aerobatics is it obligatory to fill the box in the tail according to the table.  

Certainly through the training

The modern cockpit of the DG1001 with its firmly bonded structural elements ensures maximum safety.  Together with the main wheel, which is dampened by steel springs, the DG1001Club neo can absorb more energy than comparable aircraft in the event of a crash. 

A high-quality interior with a modern, timeless design ensures the feel-good factor.  The seating ergonomics also allow long flights in the training variant without tiring.  

To improve visibility in the air, a strobe light in the nose of the fuselage is available for the DG1001.

The integrated electronics can be connected to the FLARM and thus controls the flash interval depending on the collision warning levels. The video shows how it works.

Flying without limits!

The DG1001 can be equipped with a hand rudder system when combined with fixed or electrically operated landing gear. The lever on the left side of the cockpit, which replaces the one used for the manual retractable undercarriage, is used for rudder control and enables people with disabilities to enjoy the beauty of our sport.

Tip:  Many organization's and countries support schemes to improve participation of people with disabilities in sport.
