The Glider Belly DollyThe Glider Belly Dolly



The Glider Belly Dolly is a cradle with two side-by-side wheels supporting the fuselage of a glider when the wings are removed. Also used as a rigging-aid, its height can be adjusted using a foot pedal and the product features a height indicator and a wheel break to prevent it from rolling down a slope.

The Design Engineering course, along with my job at FEA-Solutions (UK) Ltd, has given me the chance to develop my skills and knowledge, in order to start a career in the engineering sector.
