Well known designer Egon Scheine was responsable for the successful design of the german glider
„Bergfalke“. The modern design at that time based on knowledge gained by the Mü 10 Milan glider. Mü 13 „Bergfalke“ was the first glider construction after WWII. The prototype made ist maiden flight on august, 5th,
1951. More than 300 gliders of Mü 13 „Bergfalke“ were built, some of them with minor improvements during the years of construction. 1953 major improvements were incorporated which made the glider „Bergfalke II“.
1955 again the name was changed to „Bergfalke II/55“.
„Bergfake“ type gliders proved their reliability in more than 100.000 take offs with any fatal accident.. It was a
foregiving training plane, however some used it with success in serious competition. It was easy to assemble and for all these favours very well accepted. „Bergflake“ is still to be found in some private flying
clubs, where they are in favour of all the well known oldtimers, which seem to last forever.
