When the SG-38 elementary training glider was designed by Rehberg, Schneider and Hoffmann, its constructors could not have guessed just how famous it would become. This glider very soon became a standard training machine for the NSFK which was mass produced by several factories and it could also be home-built from drawings sent by post. Production was not restricted solely to Germany either and the basic design went on to be built throughout the world, making it the most widely used training glider ever known. The type was built within most European countries under a variety of different designations and amongst them was Slovakia which began production during WW2 and in post war years they continued to be built for aeroclubs in Czechoslovakia as the ŠK-38 Komar (Gnat) where they were used alongside some original ex-German SG-38 aircraft.
