Sinus and Virus composite motor gliders.

Richard Mudd of Pipistrel U.S.A. had the Virus (pronounced Vear-us) and the Sinus (pronounced Sin-us) motor gliders on display at Airventure.

The planes which are manufactured in Slovenia are available as light sport aircraft or as 200 to 400 hour build kits.

The planes are constructed using the same composite materials used in certified gliders. Each aircraft is certified and test flown in Slovenia before being disassembled and packaged into a 40 foot sea container for the month long trip to the USA. Once in the U.S. the craft are then reassembled, and test flown by the U.S. distributor, and then under the new Light Sport Aircraft category can be delivered ready to fly to the customer.

When powered by the Rotax 912 engine the Sinus has a range of around 650 nautical miles with the standard fuel tanks. With the engine turned off the Sinus has a glide ratio of around 30:1, when the propeller is feathered to 90 degrees.

The Sinus utilizes side by side seating, dual three axis stick and rudder controls, with flaperons, air brakes are located on the top of each wing. Cruise comes in at 115 knots at 4800 rpm.

The Sinus and Virus are available in both a tri-cycle gear and tail dragger configuration.

Currently over 160 craft are flying.
