Cross-Country (Intermediate/advanced) - This category includes gliders designed for all-around use - but excel in cross-country applications. Greater performance (better glider ratios, more lift at speed, greater top speeds) allows intermediate-to-advanced pilots to squeeze more hours/mileage out of a fuel tank, enjoy lower cruise RPMs, shorter takeoffs, slower landings, and dynamic handling for when it’s time to cut-up and have some fun down low. Gliders in this category are typically for pilots with a minimum of 50-100 flights total and with more than one year of experience.
