The DG-1000T of the manufacturer DG Flugzeugbau is a multifunctional double seater made of GFRP/CFRP. The aircraft is used for training, long-distance soaring as well as aerobatics. It is widely used for these three purposes due to its different wingspans of 17,2m for aerobatics and 20m for long distance soaring. The "T" indicates that the aircraft is equiped with an engine serving as a home-coming aid. Its registration and competition registration represent the founder of the FVA: Theodore von Kármán.
