Pipistrel introduces the Sinus Flex

We are proud to introduce to you the Sinus Flex model. The Sinus aircraft has been known for its versatility, offering the customer 3 aircraft in one (a fast and economic cross-country cruiser, ideal training aircraft and an efficient glider). With a very small addition – the Flex wingtips – you will be able to get another one!

Sinus Flex model is identical to the standard Sinus, with the added bonus of interchangeable wing-tips. The outer 5-foot portions of each wing can be easily taken away and replaced with short winglets of a Virus model! You couldn't decide if you wanted a Pipistrel Sinus or a Pipistrel Virus? Now you can have both, a thermal-soaring Sinus motorglider which you can quickly and easily (about 5 min of work) transform into a small and fast Virus cruiser, which can fit into any hangar!

A standard wrench is all you need to transform your Sinus into a Virus and back: the tips slide easily into the wing and back out and all it takes to secure them is about 10 turns with the wrench.

While you're enjoying your flying with one of the models, the wingtips for the other one are resting securely in the made-to-fit leather bags which protect them for getting scratched or dirty.

The existing owners of Sinus aircraft can just buy a new set of Flex wings with include both sets of exchangeable wingtips (Pipistrel will take the old set of wings into part exchange)and thus get another whole aircraft for the price of a set of wings!

We hope that this improvement will make the Sinus even more useful and versatile, satisfying even those customers that we couldn't until now. The Flex model will make storage much easier and fast cruising possible.
