Libelle Information

The Libelle has proved to be one of the golden oldies when it comes to gliders, and with the rising popularity of the Club Class, it looks set to remain popular for some time to come. It legendary ability to out climb almost anything in the sky and its effortless handling, coupled with a reasonable glide angle make it a competitive glider in the club class. And the price? Typically about £8000-£9000. Between a syndicate of three or four friends that's around £2500 each - a bargain!
