The built were used as trainers for the improved CG-4A, which had been ordered. The production CG-3A was developed from the experimental XCGFirst flight: Early February

    The commanding general, Army Air Forces, then directed the Materiel Command to review its transport procurement program to assure the installation of litter supports in planes during their manufacture and to provide for their installation in all Cs purchased without them. 16 Several months later the Air Transport Command requested that. It was to these people that the Army turned after Air Corps Commander General H.R. Arnold issued orders for the development of troops gliders and the procurement of suitable training gliders on Febru It was the performance-minded soaring people, therefore, who influenced early U.S. military glider design.

Lilienthal also investigated camber and wing sections and studied ways to increase the stability of.
