Four aircraft in one: a perfect glider, an efficient and fast cross-country cruiser, a versatile trainer, and a flexible wingspan solution transformer.
The Sinus Flex model, which transforms the airplane from a motorglider into a fast cross-country cruiser in few minutes.
Choice of nose- or tail-wheel undercarriage configuration for your personal preference.
SINUS 912 & SINUS FLEX:
|Sinus motorglider combines a true sense of a glider with unprecedented efficiency during powered and long-range cruise flight. With the Sinus you can take-off and land on very short runways, fly long distance cross-country and have fun gliding with a 27:1 gliding ratio… all in the same aircraft!
With the standard Sinus model, you literally purchase three aircraft for the price of one. You get a glider, a long range super-economic cruiser and the most versatile training aircraft on the market. Thanks to its dual flight controls and a choice of either tailwheel or nosewheel undercarriage the Sinus can be used as your primary gliding and powered-aircraft trainer! The excellent performance was confirmed with a World Champion title in 2001 and a record-breaking solo flight around the world in 2004.
Three aircraft in one not enough? You can further enhance the Sinus with a very small addition – the Flex. Sinus Flex model is identical to the standard Sinus, with the added bonus of interchangeable wing-tips. The outer 5-foot portions of each wing can be easily taken away and replaced with short winglets of a Virus model. You could not decide if you wanted a Pipistrel Sinus or a Pipistrel Virus? Now you can have both, transforming a thermal-soaring Sinus motorglider into a small and fast Virus cruiser, which can fit into any hangar. The change is is easy and only takes five minutes.
Sinus has proven its key outstanding characteristics time and time again:
