RAF Slingsby Venture

The Venture T2 was the Air Cadets' first motorised glider. It has its origins in a German design, the Scheibe SF-25B Falke; Slingsby acquired a licence to produce this type as the T61, which was subsequently evaluated by and procured for the RAF. The engine is a Rollason RS2 developing 48hp. Upon retirement in 1990-91 the Venture was superseded by the Grob Vigilant, but many have ended up in private hands.
