Our newest soaring masterpiece! Long the mainstay of the Club Soaring world, the Schweizer 2-33A was the first taste of soaring for many thousands of pilots. This beautiful 1/3 scale rendition with an advanced high performance airfoil is truly designed for aero-tow or benevolent slope launching. In just about any conditions you'd want to fly in, this majestic 17 foot wingspan 1/3 Scale 2-33 will deliver; it's smooth handling and uncanny ability to find and signal "LIFT!!" in light air will amaze and impress anybody who's ever flown a "cookie cutter" all molded lead slipper. Since this big 2-33 is easy to ballast-up for efficient penetration in windy conditions, yet remain responsive and manageable in light air or on slow field approaches you'll find this 'Gentle Giant' is the one you always want to take along on any kind of soaring outing. Developed for Aero-Tow, it's docile enough that a big slow Cub can mange her on climb out on the lazy light air days and the wide speed range will keep you flying much longer in a wider range of conditions than anything in its class.

A Built Up wing that's a pleasure to build and a Joy to Fly!

Here again, we're breaking new ground.. who else offers a high performance airfoil on a scale 'training' glider? Nobody. And as any good soaring pilot knows, 'The wing is the thing'. For the wing design we chose the SD 7032 for the center sections and the tips to provide outstanding penetration, smooth & efficient thermal turns and an exceptional speed range making the 2-33 capable of dealing with higher wind conditions. You won't get stuck downwind, and your L/D will be phenomenal. This airfoil is right at home providing outstanding light and medium air thermal performance too! Thermal or slope, breezy or calm.. smooth sailing... and the 4 scale spoilers are a wonder for short field work and precision landings, right at your feet. The wing ribs has build tabs and a wing sheeting jig. A real pleasure and no sweat build.

The Plans Set and Manual Package

This is the 'heart' of any big bird building project.. and the quality starts right here. Instead of just a set of blurred copies and a 'good luck' handshake, we give you 8 sheets of precise, detailed Original printed Plans with full size patterns and a complete 'bill of materials' for the entire project including the options setups as well as scale detail sheets.

As with our 1/4 scale version, the Build is astoundingly smooth and easy.. what would have been an overwhelmingly complicated fuselage structure builds up very quickly, flat on the board, right over the plans...

The Canopy Parts and the Fiberglass Nose

Yep.. we got 'em. And not just flimsy parts that won't stand the test of time and hundreds of flights, either. We offer a beautiful molded fiberglass nose cone as well as a spectacular vacuum molded Canopy and Top Glass set, at a reasonable price. You don't want to know the hours or $$ that went into the custom molds for these components.. but we did it so you don't have to.

Laser Cut and CNC cut Wood Parts

Here's the key to a speedy build... the Laser Cut and CNC Machined Parts set.. Every piece that would take several days cutting with a precision band-saw just to get ready to build... it's all done for you. The Built-Up Wing versions stack of laser cut ribs is most impressive! From the stabilizer tips to the complicated formers and keel, all 340+ parts... Done. Top quality lumber selection, aircraft ply, light ply and balsa plus a precision cut you'll be amazed at. The fit is superb. As it should be. Add your sheet and stick wood per the manuals complete materials list and your ready to start building!

The Shipping Situation

The Deluxe Kit package can be over-sized or ship in two boxes, so the shippers often calculate shipping based on the packages dimensions rather than it's weight. We send this via UPS to US 'lower 48' destinations, usual cost is between $37.95 and $49.95 for the various short kit packages. Please note, Overseas or Canada destinations can cost significantly more. The cart system will process the order for your items and assigin a base shipping price for each item in the cart. This means that if you order multiple items the Cart System will keep adding to the shipping costs.. no worries, we'll refund immediately the erroneous 'overages' and charge you only the shipping amount for the largest item in the order. If the kit or items are going to an overseas or Canadian destination and the cart didn't collect enough to cover the shipping we'll contact you promptly via email for the difference in costs.

I guess we should let you know...

The fiberglass work, plans, manual, CNC and laser cutting are ALL done in house here at Aviation Concepts. This is the ONLY way to assure the level of quality and attention to the details that make our kits the best in the industry. If we experience any shipping delay longer than a week after your order comes in, we will immediately notify you of the situation and when you can expect your kit to ship. We'll do our best to not keep you hanging.. unless it's already built and you just wanna keep it in the thermals. We're certain your going to love it! Enjoy!
