Equipment Type: Hang Glider

Big boys' wing: WW Sport 180 AT

Price: $875 OBO

Comments: Big boys' wing: WW Sport 180 AT. About 20 hours. Minimal damage, professionally repaired. Weight range 200 to 300 lbs. Two nosecones, both in good condition. Fin (worth having for aerotowing, but not required). XC bag. Would be excellent for a trike. 7075 tubing. AT hardware. New side wires. Manual. Resides near Dayton Ohio. Pictures at Note: this is not a direct extension of the Sport line. Per WW, "The 180's were actually a blend of the Sport and HP AT design ... did not share the same flight characteristics. They are not recommended for low airtime pilots or pilots of limited experience or skills." -Mike Meier

Comments: Okay, I know buying a glider long distance is tough since you can only take the owner's word as to it's condition. But I'll have this glider in Hearne Texas in just over a week at the Nationals. Nearly a hundred pilots from all over the country will be there. If you know somebody who's going, then here's your chance to get an awesome glider at an incredible price, AND have it inspected and even test flown for you by an independent party. If they're nice enough to bring it back to you, then you can even save on shipping! The price for the glider is $2,500, but I've got somebody who's interested in buying just the carbon fiber basetube. If you don't care about the carbon fiber basetube (and the other pilot buys the basetube), then you can get this glider for $2,350! Here are the details: AEROS STEALTH III 151 Excellent condition. Manufactured in June of 2000. Only 45 hours! Full competition version: Mylar sail, autolowering sprogs, carbon fiber basetube (round metal basetube included also), carbon fiber tip fairings, and spring-battens. Beautiful blue sail with bold white "Aeros" and "Stealth" sewn into undersurface. If you're interested, I've got lots of pictures I can e-mail. I can also provide several references you can speak to about the condition of this glider.

SkyHawk 168

Price: 875

Comments: Cheaper than a Falcon, making it the #1 choice for the low budget beginner. Turns on a dime. Floats like nothing else: I regularly beat my Falcon buddies to the top even though Iím overweighted for it. Weight range: 130-190. Easy setup. Landings are truly a breeze. Comes with 2 speed bars (one for flight and one which you can risk bruising on the practice hill) and big wheels. Located in the North-East in Montreal, Canada.

Comments: Early 1999. Clear mesh leading edge, white top, light green bottom, orange tip. More or less 100 hours, stored indoors, better than average condition.

(I have a Stealth 3 KPL now.)Includes spare downtubes, a spare Free Flight 24' reserve parachute if you want it, boxed and shipped in 48 hours/48 states.

Wills Wing Sport 167 Hang Glider w Harness

Price: 975.00

Comments: For Sale: circa 1985 Wills Wing Sport 167 Hang Glider including High Energy Harness with BRS rocket-powered parachute. This is an excellent beginning to intermediate hang glider. This glider is may be seen near in Billerica, MA (northwest of Boston). Buyer personally inspects and transports the glider upon sale. See photo at: Product Review Recreational Double Surface Glider No keel pocket. Compromise of good handling, reasonable landing, glide and penetration characteristics. 7075 tubing made for relatively light weight. The Sport American was the same glider with the more common 6061 tubing. This was about 5 lbs. heavier but was otherwise very similar. 167 Sport AT has proven to be better than average rec. class glider. Landing flare timing not critical. Very distinct flare cues. Not tail heavy as in previous WW Watch for excessive wear on corner fittings. Some gliders came with unsleeved down tubes. Replace with sleeved ASAP. Super Sport is NOT a huge gain over Sport AT if at all. Try and find a used SportAT 167! They are that well liked.
