After decades where manufacturers were chasing performance with ever increasing wing spans, focus recently has been on extracting maximum efficiencies from smaller, lighter, easier handling machines and also fun to fly.

GP Gliders take this new-found philosophy to new levels. The gliders are light and easy to rig and fly. Empty weights range from the GP11 Pulse at under 120Kg to the GP15 Jeta – complete with motor and battery – at 185Kg.

The production technology is based on the best carbon-epoxy composite materials commercially available, ensuring unmatched lightweight and strength of the construction. The glider’s structure is also high temperature resistant, which allows to offer a wide range of interesting or custom exterior colour schemes.

This glider utilises a pylon operated motor system. This has been calculated to give less overall drag when stowed and has an erection time of 5 seconds the electric system eliminates vibration, noise, fuel vapours and greatly reduces the pilot load during operation increasing the safety factor considerably.

With every model having exceptional performance, for example The GP 15 Jeta has an aspect ratio of 29 plus a wing loading range from 33-60kg/mand an L/D of over 50:1 you will always be at the front of the pack.

Every sailplane comes complete with Electric motor, battery pack, pre-installed additional battery boxes, Ballistic recovery parachute, automatic control hook ups and a complete range of options go personalise your glider. In addition, dedicated trailers specially designed for model are available.
