The charming looks of the KA8B go back to 1950 when the German company, Schleiher, manufactured the first prototype and in November 1957 the first flights where carried out. From then on, over 1100 where built to cover customer demands of this popular single-seat glider.
Seagull have chosen one of the current popular colour schemes that makes the KA8B stand out and look timeless.
