Today, I made a one hour flight with a very special glider at the LFMF airfield of Fayence. This plane (F-CRJB) was built some 30 years ago by gliding instructor Jean Magne. Jean is nowadays 83 years old and still a flying instructor.
I planned to fly a Ka-6 glider today, but Jean came to me and proposed me to fly on his plane. He explained me that from a flying experience it is something between a Ka-6 and a Pegase 90.
Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures (stupid), but no worries, I’ll fly it again in July when I’ll return to Fayence.
I made a seamless 52 minutes flight in this plane. The JP15 glider flies nice.
