The glider will be at Parham (Southdown Gliding Club) midweek during June and pilots from other clubs are welcome to come and fly it there, by arrangement. For those further afield, we are happy to collect you from Gatwick and drop you back afterwards.
SO, IF YOU WANT TO FLY THE EXCITING SHARK SJ, DROP US AN E-MAIL AS THERE WILL LIKELY BE LIMITED CAPACITY ON OUR TOUR DATES.
The Shark SJ UK Tour ended with 50 UK pilots experiencing the Shark and almost every flight was a soaring one. Feedback was universally positive both for the Sailplane but also the Jet system which performed flawlessly over the two month tour.
The Shark also flew in the UK 18m Nationals and finished in the Top-ten, flown by current Standard Class Champion, Jez Hood. Jez has produced an article of his experience with the Shark SJ in the December 2011 / January 2012 Sailplane and Gliding Magazine.
The UK Tour generated multiple orders for both Jet & Self Launch Shark Sailplanes to be delivered in Spring 2012.
