Does that mean that there are motorless airplanes?

If so, tickets must be REAL cheap on these flights.......I'm just sayin'

The motor is used to self launch the glider. At Altitude the motor is turned off to allow gliding flight. The motor can also be used foe transit flights etc. The pilot did forget one thing though. Cumulo-cement clouds are to be avoided.

That interesting. I've worked for Cessna for 15 years and I hadn't heard this story. So what do ya'll think of Cessna moving to Kansas, then to Mexico, then having to Scrap the entire line.(to the sum of $45million) because the wings started to delamanate while the FAA inspector was onboard? Just looking for comments, not an argument.
