GP15 Jeta

The GP 15 JETA is Peszke’s newest and most sophisticated, multitask 15 m, electric self-launcher up to date. Strongly focused on gliding performance, the design represents natural evolution of flawless GP 14 VELO platform, adopting very similar sleek fuselages in two sizes – standard and slim, as well as RESLS – 25 kW propulsion system. The wing and horizontal stabilizer are completely new designs. The highlights are aspect ratio of 29, unseen before in 15 m glider class and best L/D of over 50:1 (slim fuselage version). The new glider is a further step forward in terms of aerodynamic efficiency and use of carbon-epoxy composite technologies. The glider was first seen at Aero-Expo 2017 in Friedrichshafen and again wowed the crowds at the 2018 event. It had it’s maiden flight on the 19th May 2018.
