Ridley Glider

  A simple Chanute-type biplane glider was built early in 1910 by Cyril Ridley of Thames Ditton, Surrey, while a pupil at Arundel House School. The school founded an Aero Club in 1908, and its members included Reginald Mann and Robert Grimmer, who afterwards collaborated in the design and construction of the Mann and Grimmer M.1 Biplane of 1915. Cyril Ridley made a number of satisfactory gliding flights in Sandown Park, and his success encouraged others to emulate him. Span, 18 ft. Length, 14 ft. Wing area, 165 sq. ft.
