VH-PII A great performing and handling glider. Renowned in Europe as a great club glider with no vices. Climbs well in strong lift and one of the best gliders in weaker thermals too. 40/1 glide, 120 Litre ballast bags (new), spacious ASW style cockpit. Very flexible wings provide excellent handling and feedback. This glider has a number of features that make it not only a joy to fly but to ground handle too:Instruments lift with canopy, wingtip wheels, tail wheel (not skid), strong undercarriage with positive locking. Reliable instruments including Vertica V2 running XCSoar. The Pegase is handicapped just behind the LS4 but this one will cost you less than 1/2 the price (without the $500 per year manufacturers charges). Comes with fresh form 2, all tow out gear & tube trailer. A bargain at $21,000! Contact Greg on 0400 438 038
