An awesome video of Justin “Jitter” Gafford flying a plane he built with Swiss Peter Richner. They made a road trip up to the Central Coast and flew a few spots along the way, all in very light lift conditions. I don’t think you can find a better example of the versatility and sheer fun potential of an ultrabatics glider! Dig the sweet rolling circle… so much radness here!
Super nice video of Guillaume Leroyer flying his Sonic in Brittany. They’ve had a lousy summer over there with lots of clouds and rain, but that didn’t stop Guillaume from getting back out flying with his dad. He’d been living abroad in Canada for work and was just back after two years away… clearly his flying hasn’t suffered at all! Really nice to see him making more movies!!
Another great video from Justin and Peter… wow, if this doesn’t make you want to go fly right now, I think you’d better check your pulse! Justin is flying a 74″ version of the Swiss Fish which Peter designed. Really beautiful flying, great editing and camera angles, and a perfect soundtrack. Winning!
Luis Alberto Robledo T. of Colombia has sent another video of his Suraci flying the beautiful local slopes. He has modified his plane and given it a “Swiss” treatment with lightening holes and an all moving tail. His flying was already good with this plane, but for me, it seems he’s gotten even better now that his plane has been lightened further!
Next he plans to build an ExCali… can’t wait! He’s an excellent pilot and I expect we’ll see some very cool things from him in the future!
