The Schneider DFS 108-14 SG-38 Schulgleiter (German for "school glider") is a German high-wing, cable-braced, single-seat primary glider

The SG 38 was designed to be a training glider for basic flight training by the Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps (NSFK). 

The usual launch method was by bungee cord from a sloped hill. Because training was conducted solely by solo flight the aircraft had to be very easy to fly and also easy to repair.

The high-wing design uses a kingpost and cable bracing. 

The primary structure of the glider is of wood, with the wings, tail surfaces and inverted "V" kingpost all finished in doped aircraft fabric covering. 

The pilot sits on a simple seat in the open air, without a windshield.

The basic configuration was similar to earlier gliders such as the Stamer Lippisch Zögling and the Grunau IX, 

but the SG 38 was an entirely new design. Improvements included enlarged tail surfaces for better stability, 

a separate skid mounted on shock-absorbing springs, and an updated seat for the pilot.
