Janus B VH-GVU

The Victorian Motorless Flight Group is offering its Schemmp-Hirth Janus B VH-GVU For sale. The Janus B is a 18m two seat high performance sailplane that is ideal for cross country coaching and advanced training on a flapped sailplane. It’s a delight to fly with the fixed horizontal stabiliser giving it much improved handling over the A model. GVU has been completely refinished (both Gelcoat and Paint) by Joe Lucanie, the wings in 1997, Fuselage and tail in 2012. It is in excellent conditions inside and out and sold with basic instruments, radio, tasman electric vario, full tow out gear and fully enclosed aluminium clad steel frame dual axle trailer.
Interior recently refinished also in excellent condition. Glider was damaged in 2008 in a heavy landing accident, and repairs were professionally carried out in 2012 to the tail boom and cockpit area which were damaged. A new canopy was also fitted.
