To ALL My Flying Friends,

WOW! I'm sold! Where do I get one?? This is just TOO cool! I would
imagine that if you had a spare $50K+ (or so) laying around that you
weren't too tightly attached to, this just might be your ticket to
ride.

I am amazed! Foot launch, Bungee catapult launch, car tow launch and
plane tow launch, and who knows how many other methods you could
devise????

Be sure to look at ALL the links for this glider, as they are all
different and explain all the other attributes of this aircraft.

Keep Em Flying!

I agree that just looks like incredible fun! However, it just seems sick and wrong to have to pay $50,000 for a toy that you can pick up and carry around with you. I know, you are paying extra for it to be that light, but it just seems that if the price were a little more modest, everyone would want one. (I don't know about one in every garage, but...) I would sure love to learn to fly in one!

Did'ja get to look at his calf muscles???

Actually I love gliding, it is a real art reading the air, the wind, thermals. Another great way of getting airborne, and yes if I had the cash I might well be tempted to add another flying toy to the two gyros and others planned when, one day my ship comes in.
