This is very good idea we are working on for a long time.$3000 buys you a Private Pilot's Glider Certificate( includes 10 hours in a Rotax Pipistrel " ICE Alpha Glider" with feathering prop).
Presumably could also get Glider Certificate if proficient after 5 hrs in ICE Alpha Glider plus 5 hrs in Alpha Electro?
That would be really cool!
Great cheap way for Young Eagles to start flying......inexpensive "foot-in-the-door", so to speak.
Excellent vid shows how to sell it.
-for me,much more interesting is possibility to soar when rain,wind and athermicInteresting.
