A fixed-wing aerodyne intended for motorless flight. Gliders are generally divided into four classes: (1) Primary Glider. Used for training and designed for simple glides with continuous loss of height. (2) Intermediary Sailplanes. A more advanced form of glider capable of continuous flight without loss of height. (3) High Performance Sailplanes. A highly developed glider of great aerodynamic efficiency designed for competition and other high performance flying. (4) Towed Glider. This is towed behind an aeroplane singly or in a "train" carrying troops or freight.
A heavier-than-air aircraft that is supported in flight by the dynamic reaction of the air against its lifting surfaces and whose free flight does not depend principally on an engine. An example is the Nimbus III
Glider is an EP by My Bloody Valentine, released in April 1990 by Creation Records. The EP was also the group's first release on the Sire Records label in the USA. The lead track, "Soon", was later included on the Loveless album.
