Default Ventus C 17.6

I am selling my 1985 Ventus C. It has both 17.6m winglets and custom 15m
winglets. Komet trailer. 15m winglets were custom made from Masak bases and
Ventus 2A fins.

The panel and all components were replaced with new when I imported and
Americanized it in 2001: SN10B. Volkslogger. SB9 backup vario (with audio).
Becker radio. Boom mike. PZL compass. New Winter airspeed. New altimeter.
Custom carbon fiber panel. New style interior. Two batteries (flies for 5 or
6 hours on one).

New aluminum oxygen tank. Nelson system.

Glider is in excellent condition. It has around 1500 hours and no damage or
damage history. Logs stolen with tool boxes but history reconstructed via
original owner in Berlin.

Gelcoat has cosmetic crazing on top of wings in spots. Race it and patch it
when you feel like spending the money.

If you know about Ventus C's, you know that they are easy to control and can
win any contest with a good driver. Can't quite climb with the new ships but
will outrun them. They can also compete in 15, 18, and Open classes. And
with the long wings on, they are amazing!

I am selling her for $55,000. She is located at Cal City. Contact John
Shelton at 661-296-3484 or . Pictures can be seen at
