Nice bit of fantasy, if you're into that stuff. I preferred this
reading, however:

You guys are a laugh a minute! Each one of us likes his guy and hates

proper use of a pronoun, and apostrophe, and correct spelling give me away?

Lock and load...

Naysayers, naysayers!!! Are you guys really pilots? Aren't soaring pilots supposed to be optimists?

The same nonsense statements were said about the wright brothers.

A PW-5 cost $18,500 new.

Using an inflation calculator, that would be $29,487 in today's money.




I'm talking about a "barebones" glider, no frills. No blowholes, no winglets, no water ballast, no flaps, just the absolute basics. Nothing but basic instruments, no upholstery, just a seat pan.

If it happened with the PW-5, it can happen again....just this time needs to be with a 15 meter wingspan and a t tail.

Here's the funniest part of all this... try buying a glider. Long wait times. Factories can't keep up with the demand. And that's at these "excessive" prices.

That's not exactly a sign of an overpriced market. When supply is well below demand, it's unlikely that the product is overpriced.

Gliders go forever, and you can get incredible performance at a very reasonable cost by buying a 25 year old glider. Only a fool would try to compete against that.

To the OP - why not just buy an older glider? Why ask someone to build something that already exists?

Andrew Ainslie,

If it was the same price, why buy something that's 40 years old???

If WHAT was the same price?

There is no such product, nor will there be.

Unless you'd like, as an act of philanthropy, to take $20 million or so and sink it onto making gliders and selling them at below cost.

Or - just buy a 2nd hand 19.

That Douglas Adams quote is so appropriate today in The Netherlands. Thanks!

I will produce what you want, at that price, but I need an order for
900,000 of them and a 50% deposit.
