LS7wl – PE

At first sight you would be forgiven for mistaking this glider to be an LS8, but it isn’t, but by only a small performance margin. Absolutely superb handling characteristics and in South African weather it is a great standard class glider. The fuselage and cockpit are exactly the same size and layout as the LS8. She is equipped with a Cambridge L-Nav and GPS Nav system.
