Maeda Koken SM type 206
https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=https://www.weblio.jp/wkpja/content/%E6%B2%B3%E8%BE%BA%E5%BF%A0%E5%A4%AB_%E6%B2%B3%E8%BE%BA%E5%BF%A0%E5%A4%AB%E3%81%AE%E6%A6%82%E8%A6%81

"1951 (Showa 26) Professor Hirokazu Sato, Koken Maeda, Kenichi Maeda, Gliding Maru Tanaka, Gliding Tadao Kawabe and others created the West Japan Airways Association and the design and production of a double-seat twin-body second practice glider was started, and due to financial difficulties, the completion schedule was delayed by more than half a year , and it was completed at the Itoshima Plant of Kenichi Maeda in August 1952 .
Unit 1 was named SM206, and Kawabe successfully completed a test flight with rubber rope towing at the site of the former military's Motooka airfield. After passing the seaworthiness test by launching a winch, which is more advanced than the rubber rope, gliders Tanaka Maruhiro and Kawabe Tadao made demonstration flights in various parts of Kyushu and flew for several hours at Mt. Rai and Mt. Kagami. In the afternoon of 15th, 1952, the first mountain flight was carried out at Nagaito-mura, Itoshima-gun, Fukuoka Prefecture. Operator Tadao Kawabe Gliding Officer It was the highest gliding record after the war with a flight time of 16 minutes and 30 seconds.

It was a record with a straight landing distance of 6km and a real flight distance of 9km from Mt. Nagano (commonly known as Hizen Pass) at an altitude of 590m on the serpentine village road in Itoshima Village. It was the longest gliding record after the war . Professor Hiroshi Sato, a professor of design, wrote in a memorandum that he enjoyed a walk in the sky while riding on the double-seat SM206 operated by Kawabe and Tanakamaru, which was desired in "Aoyama Hakuun". In addition, the first riverside maneuver and aerial train towed around Kyushu were well received and succeeded. The SM206 was reported as a wing of peace and became a hot topic, and was named "Maizuru" in the open call for the name of the evening edition Fukunichi. When the name of the Maizuru was decided, Kenichi Maeda said, "It's like it was a battle with Hino-san," but this was in 1911 ( Meiji 44) when Captain Hino Kumazo was transferred from Tokorozawa. He said that he was making a test flight of a Hino-style monoplane (Maizuru) at a training ground on the Hakozaki coast of Fukuoka. The Maizuru at this time skated well, but could not soar into the sky.

The SM of SM-206 is the registered aircraft number JA-2006 given from the initials of Professor Hiroshi Sato of Kyushu University and Kenichi Maeda of Maeda Koken.

Around Kyushu by SM-206 towed by Piper Cub-18 (called aerial train)​

The "Aerial Train around Kyushu" held at "The 30th Anniversary of Printing of the Mainichi Shimbun Western Headquarters Sending to the Sky of Peace" took off from Kokura Sone Airfield at 8:52 am on November 7, 1952. rice field. The flight was carried out by the Mainichi Newspapers, Piper Cub 18-type pilot Kurihara, and the SM-206 (double seat, twin-body) second aircraft, which was connected by a 100m tow line with a Kume engineer. The torso and the green twin torso were just shining .

Long-distance touring with a Japanese-made double-seat glider was the first feat before and after the war. "

Hi! Takatori SH-15, SH-16S and SH-18.
I can't find any information about Takatori-Sanken in Japanese sources.

According to hesham-san's contribution,
"This company has taken over the sailplane development and construction work of the Yokohama Gliding Club.
The former chairman of the YGC, Mr.Osamu Saito, continues to act as chief of sailplane design."

Unfortunately, in my opinion, there is no series of names from the Takatori company.
The years of construction are too different, SH.8 1971; SH.16 1969; SH.18 1963.
I am convinced that the numbers of the designations stand for the span. At least it agrees.
