Phoenix Motorglider Photos

This side profile shows the outstanding fuselage aerodynamics. Click on any photo to enlarge. View from seated position only as ensuing encreased pulse rate may cause light-headedness!

Josef Bostik holds the wing extension. Note that it is twice the length of the Lambada extension. The Phoenix will fit easily into any hangar without the extensions in place.

It takes about 30 seconds to secure the wingtip in place.

Forward view of cockpit and panel.

Rear view of cockpit. Note the plush interior, and the center controls. There are individual levers for flaps, spoilers, and trim.
Our next posting will feature a flight report- stay tuned!

I'm definately ordering one, that a sexy bird. A retractible model with all glass would be the touring model to beat all tour ships until electric becomes viable.
