    Do you need any help in selling these birds? That’s what I do!
    I have over 2,000 hours and have been in sales my entire life. This would be a great bird to sell to those who are just starting their flying life!

    Their long-wing Sinus and Virus also qualify as self-launching gliders. Both can be flown by a private pilot without a valid medical – as is true with any glider. You can buy them ready to fly or build your own from a kit. If you do build a kit, you can have it certified for IFR.
