(made in 1974)
The Albatross was the second production glider for the Birdman company. During 1975 Birdman acquired the U.K. dealership for Ultralight Products of California. The UP Dragonfly was imported and proved to be of superior performance to the Hawk and Albatross. As an interim measure updating kits of prone A frames and deflexers were produced. The high performance conversion for the Hawk reduced the sail billow to nearer 3 deg.
