Beautiful new tooling

The JS1 Self Launcher is now entering its final development stages.   The new tooling and manufacturing techniques used to manufacture the wing and fuselage moulds are impressive. The number of prototyping parts of the control and engine systems are also increasing daily.  Follow the project update page on the JS website.

Self Launcher: JS1 or JS2?
Unfortunately an advertisement slipped through in Gliding International March 2016 addition calling the JS1 Self Launcher the JS2, a mistake made by the marketing team trying out new fonts.  However, the performance will be exactly the same as the JS1 and it will only be an amendment to the current Type Certificate. Thus the new JS aircraft will continue the legacy of the trusted brand, as the JS1 18m/21m Self Launcher.

Are you an accident waiting to happen or a gliding god? Would you rather be flying in a competition or the back seat of a K21? Do you eat sleep and breathe gliding (but seldom wash)? Find out here!
