I hope this is the correct place to post this extract that may be of interest :

"The 2017 John Orr Memorial Lecture titled “Soaring to Success - The Realisation of an Aviation Dream” will showcase the incredibly inspiring story of Jonker Sailplanes, and will be presented by founding brothers, Attie and Uys Jonker.

The lecture will take us on an incredible journey from concept through to the production of a world class sailplane (glider). The lecture will highlight the intricate blend of complex aeronautical and mechanical design with a largely manual manufacture and assembly process. The lecture is bound to captivate and inspire anyone with an interest in mechanical engineering."
