The ASK-18, which first flew in October 1974, is a single-seat Club Class sailplane based on the design of the Ka 6E and Ka 8. It combines the simple, rugged construction, docile flying characteristics and ability to soar in weak thermals of the Ka 8 with the cross-country performance of the Ka 6E. The ASK-18 was designed to progress pilots from first solos to early competition flying.
