Glider Names

Ideas still welcome

If we go for two gliders then we need to decide whether we want the nomenclature to be “glider 1” and “glider 2” or for each to have different names e.g “blue eagle” and “red eagle” (icez) or even totally different names - NASA mars rover style.


  • Raptor
  • Eagle
  • Hawk
  • Kites - not really suitable (jcoxon)
  • Falcons
  • Owl
  • Harriers - name of famous aircraft (jcoxon)
  • Buzzard

How about something like “Sparrowhawk” and “Goshawk” - different but the same root. jcoxon
