For years now I've wanted to build one of these "air chair" gliders. Watching this video doesn't help curb that desire. :roll:

I always thought it would be fun to get my full scale glider rating. I have heard that flying through the air with no motor sound is an amazing experience.

I have never seen this, though. Looks a lot more affordable than glider ops. No need to pay for the tow and the airplane is much less expensive.

Who sells those?

I expected your reply to be "Neither would I".
