Apis

Stacks Image 53
Holding many world records, the strong, ultra lightweight construction, and 115ft/minute sink rate make the Pipistrel Apis one of Canada’s best recreational gliders. With a retractable single main wheel, wingtip wheels, and retractable engine, it is easily taxied to the runway without the help of the gliding club ground crew. In fact, you can go soaring anytime, from any runway, without the need for a towplane.
