Our Mission:

Promote soaring, serve sailplane users, and provide new equipment.

Since 1988, Blanik America has been committed to promoting soaring through providing customers with the best quality glider purchase packages, in addition to proven service supplying spare parts to Blanik glider owners. Blanik America has delivered over two hundred gliders and trailers to satisfied customers in the U.S., Canada, and other parts of the world.

Blanik America, Inc. is

  • the exclusive distributor of LET sailplanes in the U.S.A., Canada, and Mexico,

  • and the sole U.S. importer of Sportinë Aviacija's high performance sailplanes

 Blanik America is also an authorized dealer for the Aerotechnik Vivat motorgliders, Becker radios, a distributor of enclosed LAK and Cobra glider trailers, and parts supplier for all Blanik and LAK products.

What do we do?

  • We promote soaring through publishing a Newsletter, organizing Blanik Fun Meets, giving lectures at soaring conventions, and exhibiting new aircraft. Through education we help Blanik users extend the service life of their gliders.
  • We sell new gliders, oversee their finishing at the factory, manage financial transfers, perform pre-shipment inspections, and arrange export crating and packaging. We order, pay, and coordinate all overseas shipping, insurance, customs, and delivery to customers.
  • We process FAA registration and coordinate airworthiness certification, supervise assembly and advise on the proper operation of the gliders.
  • We perform after-sale warranty servicing, maintain factory bulletin update reporting, stock and ship original replacement parts, manuals, and accessories, and communicate with the overseas factory in their native language.
  • We actively participate in the sport of soaring.


We are a business member of the Soaring Society of America, the Soaring Association of Canada, a member of the Seattle Glider Council, and a member of the Cascade Soaring Society.
