The 2011 UK HpH Shark tour is now over following todays visit to the Bicester Regionals. Over the last 7 weeks, HpH UK have travelled almost 1500 miles around Southern England, allowing 50 pilots to fly, and over 100 members of 10 UK Gliding clubs to experience the Jet Shark. Every single pilot has run the Jet Sustainer system successfully and feedback from everybody has highlighted its exceptional ease of use, excellent rate of climb, and the impressive all-round handling and performance of the 304S.

To allow other pilots in Europe to experience the 304Jet, HpH UK unfortunately will have to return the Shark to the Czech Republic at the end of this week, however we look forward to welcoming the first of the multiple customer ordered airframes that are set to begin arriving in the UK from March 2012.

Now almost 45 UK pilots have flown the Shark SJ after a successful day at Gransden Lodge where several pilots experienced the Jet and also some soaring between the showers…. All very impressed.

Well done to Jez Hood who flew the Shark SJ into ninth place in the 18m Nationals at Tibenham against a strong field of competitors and sailplanes. The first competition day was his first cross-country in the glider and he would have benefited significantly if we had fitted the glider with cloud-flying instruments (especially on the first 2 days).  - Our oversight… Sorry.

Jez Launching on day 3 which was an excellent racing day where the Shark ran really well …. and only Jez’s third cross country in the glider.  (photo Tony Griffiths)
