Pipistrel — Virus SW (2010)

Pipistrel, headquartered in Slovenia with U.S.-bound manufacturing done in nearby Italy, has a line of interesting models. In this video we examine the Virus SW, for Short Wing. We’ve previously reviewed the long wing version and the Sinus motorglider. In addition this company makes a powered sailplane and they started with weight shift trikes. Pipistrel has also distinguished itself with a string of victories in NASA efficiency contests, more recently winning an astounding $1.3 million.
