Yearly Archives: 2014



HPH are pleased to announce that the HPH Shark has obtained full EASA certification.   


The certificate is shown below.



This applies to the Pure and self launch variants of the Shark Sailplane. Sailplanes of this type will be moving to UK CAA Certificates of Airworthiness and onto the BGA CAMO shortly, as all work to ready this has already been done in anticipation.   For the Jet sustainer variant, clearly the airframe is common so that is all done also.  Only the jet powerplant remains, but in September and also October of 2014, two Jet sustainer solutions became the first to be EASA certified.   The first of these is based in the Czech Republic, very close to HPH and HPH are working with this company to complete the remaining work to support full certification of all Shark sailplanes during 2015.

This has been a long and often difficult road, but HPH and EASA should be congratulated on over seven years of working together with this final result.




As the numbers of HPH Shark sailplanes in the UK continue to increase, the attached Press Release details a significant enhancement in our ability to support and repair the UK installed base.





Another New Shark Jet has arrived in the UK and the new syndicate have done almost 40 hours of flying in the first week.!.

The HPH Shark Jet was the center of attention at the BGA conference.   I would estimate that we discussed the glider with about 100 pilots and there was great acceptance of the concept and of the specification, build quality and excellent value that the Shark Jet Represents…

Already pilots are beginning to follow-up after the conference and Delivery slots might become a challenge…. get in touch soon..!..






HPH UK will attend the BGA conference on Saturday 1st March 2014 in Nottingham and will display a Shark Jet sailplane.  Please call by our stand and convince yourself of the quality, performance and value that HPH offer in this top-class 18m sailplane.   See you there..






I will be out of the office until the 20th January 2014 and will have very limited phone / email service during that time.
