Klaus Holighaus was managing two glider manufacturers: Schempp-Hirth and Glasflügel. In designing the glider he therefore used the wings from the Glasflügel 303. It first flew in September 1976. Originally it had an all moving tail-plane, but a conventional tail was added later, as were carbon-fibre spars.
