Aerobatic Jet Sailplane
The project was initiated in August 2012 after a phone talk between Andrey Platygin (Advanced Design Alliance) and Eugene Zakharenkov (SnapRoll Aero) with a goal to build the fastest in the world unlimited aerobatics self-launching glider.
The glider features carbon fiber composite structures, symmetrical wing airfoil, jet engine H250 of Jetbeetle, 60l fuel capacity.
