Taurus M

110980

Taurus M is the only two-seat glider with a 15-meter wing-span and it is also the most independent in operation. Equipped with a powerful, yet fully retractable high-performance 50 HP fuel engine and double retractable main undercarriage, the Taurus can go gliding wherever and whenever you want. When others will be waiting for a helper to connect the tow rope and hold the wingtip for take-off, you will already be far away and flying for hours in the Taurus M.
