To replace the gliders with k21s will take a long time. The order book is full, even if shleicher could double production and were willing to do so it would take up to 10 years. If wrangling about modifications started maybe it would take forever.

And unless the airworthiness issues are sorted out how long before the shiny new gliders were grounded?
