Another milestone

Saturday the 19th May 2017 became another historic day for GP Gliders when the first GP15SE Jeta took to the air for it’s maiden flight. The entire flight was conducted independently. The initial ground run was with one wing down running on it’s wing wheel. Even at reduced power the glider quickly accelerated to the point which allowed the pilot to lift the wing. He then wound on full power and the electric system pushed the glider down the runway and into the air where it climbed away gracefully.
