Mark IV 19

Price: 900

Comments: This glider is in good condition. I replaced a bent leading edge since it was first listed for $850. That price reflected the fact that it had a turn. It now (over $200 later) flies perfectly straight. It was fully inspected and all tubing is straight and wires and fittings are in good shape. Glider has about 50 hours on it with some wear at wing tips. This is a great first glider!

Equipment Type: Hang Glider

Vision Mark IV 190, Wills harness, parachute, helmet, instruments & wheels.

Price: $2000 Complete.

Comments: Pacific Airwave Vision Mark IV, about 190 size, late 1980's. White top with black leading edge, orange bottom with a black rear stripe. No reason to worry about the year; gliders of this genre haven't really changed all that much. Better than average condition, a few cuts/scuffs on the nosecone. About 30-something hours, layed in a garage for a long time. Carefully tuned (very little neccessary) by an experienced former factory sailmaker and test pilot, flies cleanly, quietly without any wrinkles or flutters, goes up like a balloon. Includes Glidemaster wheels that are unneccessary; it's absurdly easy to land. This is big piece of pumpkin chocolate cake, an ideal cheap first glider for someone hooking in over 200 pounds. $1000. Wills Wing Z-3 harness, all black, sized for a 5'-11" to 6'-0", 180 to 190 pounder. Has 2 spreaders and 3 or 4 suspension points per side, depending on how you prefer to rig it. Full internal storage, except the parachute, which is chest buckle hinge mounted. Absolutely clean with a fresh front zipper. Includes a large backpack style gear bag. $300. Parachute is a High Energy Quantum 440, the current model, large size, 2 years old, repacked twice, will include a fresh repack. $500. Finsterwalder Charley Insider helmet, white, Euro size 59/60, medium large. New, barely tried it on. $150. Harness, parachute and helmet, $700. Flytec 4010 instrument deck, with mounting clamp. Grey 2000 model, basically identical to the current blue one. New, unscratched, so little used that the original batteries are still strong. $350. I got all this for a professional buddy, taught him to fly, but he ended up going back to sailplanes. This is a perfect, cheap clean, complete equipment set-up for someone just getting into it. If you stick with it, about the only thing you'll probably eventually outgrow and sell is the wing, everything else is a keeper. $2000 takes everything.
