Waiting to fly at
This is my aircraft. It is a PILATUS B4 15m glider, built
in 1974. It is an all aluminium construction aircraft with a maximum glide
ratio of 34 to 1, that means I can travel 34 feet forward and only loose 1
foot in height. To put that in perspective, for every 1000 feet of height
above the ground, I can fly about 6 miles over the ground. To date my highest
flight has been 12,000 feet, and my longest has been 5 hrs 47 min.
