The instant invention discloses a gliding store with spring-actuated, extendible wings. Upon launch from an aircraft, and separation from the aircraft a safe distance, a launch lanyard and wing control device is separated from the store, allowing a pair of hinged wings to be force open. Each wing is set on the store body at a predetermined position to cause the store to glide at a predetermined angle and with a predetermined flight path of free-fall.
