  • - Glide ratio 27:1
  • - Cruise speed 120 KTS at 75% with 5.7 Gal/Hr
  • - Best glide speed 57 KTS

About our N638TT Xtreme Motorglider (official Diamond HK 36 TTC Motorglider): This motorglider was built in Austria in 1998 and has a BRAND NEW smooth-running Rotax 914 turbo-charged engine with a newly overhauled constant speed propeller. It possess a tricycle gear for easy take-off and landing. Additional technical details on Diamond Xtreme Motorgliders can be found at the Diamond Austria website.  Information about Diamond aircraft can be found at the Diamond website.

Equipment List of the N638TT motorglider:  This like a USAF warbrid painted Xtreme motorglider has a panel that would please both the soaring enthusiast and the basic VFR or IFR airplane pilot.  A Filser LX100 audio variometer and a KT-76A transponder with mode C capability makes soaring easier and safer and this touring motor glider is probably the ONLY commercial motorglider equipped with a passive Collision Avoidance system, the R-5 made by Proxalert.  The KLX-135A GPS/Com with flip-flop frequency selection makes communication and navigation simple.  A new Garmin GPS 196 moving map provides a third independent GPS source in this motorglider ( if you really need 3 GPS units  ;) ) During power flight, a PS Engineering  intercom provides easy communication for side-by-side pilots. An instrument equipped panel with electric gyros rounds out the panel of this unique motorglider.

Please see also what our clients are writing about riding a motorglider at SkyKingSoaring! Motorgliders are real great fun to fly as a guest or a pilot - it is your choice! Sky King Soaring offers highly recommend flight training in motorgliders - see also our flight training page

 

Reasons hands down to fly a motorglider vs. light sport aircraft (LSA):

  • > Fly in a motorglider in a proven, certified airframe with a standard airworthiness certificate - utility category.
  • > Fly above 10,000 feet MSL - in fact powered or un-powered soaring flight is possible to FL 180 and beyond.
    (Sky King Soaring has been up to FL 220 without the engine!)
  • > Fly VFR over the tops. Fly even IFR in a motor glider if so equipped and rated.
  • > Fly in a motorglider with a cruise speed of 120 KTS and above.
  • > Fly in a motorglider with a GW up to 1698# to lessen the effects of turbulence.
  • > Glide in a motorglider without a tow plane. Cover long distances as a sailplane engine-off. Go international.
  • > Fly with your guests in your motorglider and charge them when you own a commercial glider license.
  • > Fly a motorglider (and glider) even if your medical certificate has been revoked.
  • > Fly without a medical even if you are not an american resident - no drivers license needed.
