Classic Aero-TV: Stunning Simplicity–Adventure A/C’s Electric Motorglider

From 2014: An Exercise In Elegant Simplicity... AND Affordable Fun!

Model airplanes and ultralights are close cousins, and you’ll see what we mean by that in this video. ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell took the opportunity to talk with Brian Carpenter while at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo 2014.

Carpenter’s Rainbow Aviation Services specializes in sport pilot training but they got their start with ultralights. Carpenter is convinced that ultralights still represent the perfect first step into piloting an aircraft. He also recognizes that ultralights have become scarce and he has an electrifying solution to fix that.

Carpenter has designed a unique ultralight glider that is a perfect candidate for an electric motor. He explains his concepts of the aircraft development, and his first step will be to add an electric motor to help sustain glider flight. Rainbow Aviation has aligned itself with the Quicksilver Aircraft Company as a source to produce his powered ultralight glider. You’ll see lots of flying in this video and you’ll meet a guy who has big plans for small airplanes.
