Histoire résuméeThe Salto is an aerobatic sailplane designed by Ursula Hanle, widow of the former Glasflugel director and designer Eugen Hanle. The Salto, which first flew in 1971, employs a Standard Libelle wing shortened at the root to produce a span of 13.6 m., and fitted with trailing edge dive brakes and a tail parachute for approach control. The fuselage has a fixed, faired wheel and a V-tail. Many other features of the Libelle are incorporated. Tip extensions have been designated extending the wingpsan up to a much as 15.8 m./ 51.8 ft. form ?g? limitations are +7 and ?5. Later production was by Dokter Fiberglas. ATC

The H-101 Salto (German: "Loop") is an aerobatic glider of glass composite construction, developed in Germany in the 1970s. Based on the Standard Libelle H-201, it was designed by Ursula Hänle, widow of Eugen Hänle, former Director of Glasflügel. It was first produced by Start + Flug GmbH Saulgau.

The H-101 differs from the Libelle in having a V-tail, showing its ancestry to the V-tailed Hütter H-30 GFK. Four flush-fitting air brakes were put on the trailing edges of the wings, replacing the more conventionally-sited air brakes of the Standard Libelle. The Salto's air brakes are hinged at their mid-points so that half the surface projects above the wing and half below.

The Salto prototype first flew on 6 March 1970, and 67 had been delivered by early 1977, when production at Start + Flug GmbH Saulgau ceased. Five more Saltos were built from 1993 to 1996 at the German company "LTB Frank & Waldenberger", bringing total output of Salto gliders to 72.
