Nimbus 4

The Nimbus 4 is the fastest glider. The aircraft is produced by Schempp-Hirth.

On Dec. 22, 2006 a Nimbus 4 DM (DM = double Seat/Motor) set the open class world glider speed record of 306.8 km/h (about 190 mph) over a 500 Km (about 310 miles) out and return course. The aircraft was piloted by Klaus Ohlmann.

Some 37 Nimbus 4 DM gliders have been built.
