After about 1,600 hours with my beloved Kestrel, the absolute feel-good glider, there is now a 1000% improvement: my new Antares. My enthusiasm was ignited after the very first start. The harmonious and precise controls, the extreme maneuverability despite the 20m wingspan and the good-natured flight characteristics allow me to get out of the plane completely relaxed even after a 9-hour flight in the Alps. In the meantime I have had 80 hours of great flying and my expectations have been exceeded.
