Default Motorglider Endorsement

I will be taking delivery on a Mini LAK 13.5 electric self launch next year and need to get the required endorsement. I am located in Western Washington state. Any instructors nearby? L. Wyman

Lynn,

Several of the instructors in the Willamette club are able to help you. Tow it down to North Plains.

I think I was misunderstood. I need the endorsement before taking delivery. I would like to find an authorized endorser with access to a two-place motor glider. My Mini LAK is a single seater and will not be used to get the endorsement.

You still may need a CFI-G sign-off for that specific glider for insurance purposes, even after the self-launch endorsement.

Yes, certainly will do that--several CFI-Gs here. Thanks.

I have always┬* wondered about the usefulness of having someone who's
never seen a particular make/model of glider "sign me off" as competent
to fly it.

When I transitioned to self-launchers (nine years ago), I was told by
Costello that I couldn't fly the ship by aero tow before getting the
endorsement. Where is the requirement coming from to get the
endorsement before even taking delivery?
