    We are excited to announce the availability of a brand new wing extension for LAK17B gliders. The wing extension increases the wing span to 21 meters, making the LAK17B an Open Class glider in that configuration. This increases the versatility of LAK17B in addition to its 18 meter and 15 meter wingspans which have been available already. An introductory incentive is available to first five worldwide buyers ordering the 21 m extensions during the month of September.
