Impressions & Testimonials

"The LAK-17B FES mini, Minilak, glider revealed excellent qualities of flight at low and high speed, generating a very great ease of steering, in particular for the detection of lift. Its flight behavior is very pleasant, and above, all very healthy in flight. This makes it a particularly secure glider, which should be recommended for novice pilots."

Ghislaine Facon Aerospace engineer, pilot and owner LAK-17B FES mini (Minilak)

“On April 23, 2020, I flew for the first time on my LAK 17. The glider works perfectly. Operation is simple and easy. The distance flown was 400 km. I want to thank you Vytautas and the whole LAK team for working on my glider.”

Roman Kostelnik Owner of the newest LAK-17B FES sailplane

"It is now four month ago when you transported the mini LAK to our airfield. In the meantime our club members flew the mini LAK for 60 h. The first week in August we stayed for flying holidays in Bartholomä, a small glider airfield in the south of Gemany. During that time I personally flew the mini LAK over a 530 km cross country flight. Some people in our club have been skeptical if it will be possible to perform long cross country flights with a 13.5 m glider. Everybody now is very enthusiastic and happy about the performance and the flying qualities of the aircraft. Also the manufacturing quality was pointed out. … It was a concern for me to give you a positive response about our mini LAK."
