The Glaser-Dirks company produced the following gliders:
- DG-100 (Standard Class)
- DG-200 (15 metre Class)
- DG-300 (Standard Class)
- DG-400 (Self-launching motor glider)
- DG-500 (Two seater)
- DG-600 (15 metre and 18 meter Class)
In 2000 DG Flugzeugbau built a new factory and moved to the Bruchsal airfield.
In 2003 DG took over the assets of Rolladen Schneider including the LS brand name and designs.
In 2009 the company proposed a highly controversial annual charge to the owners of aircraft that had been built by the bankrupt predecessor companies. This charge is said to be for the documentation that is needed to maintain the airworthiness of aircraft that DG Flugzeugbau had never built themselves.
Gliders in production
DG Flugzeugbau currently produces:
- DG-808 (15 metre and 18 metre)
- DG-1000 (Two seater)
- Rolladen-Schneider LS8, (Standard Class with optional wing-tips to increase the span to 18 metres.)
- LS10 (15 metre and 18 metre Class)
The Glaser-Dirks company ran into financial trouble in 1996 because the engine planned for the DG-800B was no longer available and no replacement could be found. The assets of the bankrupt company were bought by Friedel Weber and his wife Eva-Marie Weber in partnership with the accountant Gerhard Wolff. They founded the new company "DG Flugzeugbau GmbH". Dirks stayed on as chief designer.
