Looking for high adventure at a fraction of the cost of a traditional aerobatic airplane? Want to soar for hours and land safely at your local airport? Take a look at this beautiful 1984 Grob G-109B Vigilant Motor Glider.
The Grob G-109B is a low-wing cantilever motor glider, with a T-tail, folding (and detachable) wings, and side-by-side seating with dual controls. It is mainly constructed from glass-reinforced plastic and has a taildragger landing gear. Entry and exit from the cockpit is easy through two perspex doors which open upward – a modification from the older, original one-piece G109A canopy. The cockpit can be heated, providing that the engine is running, and the seat backs can be adjusted and cushions of differing thickness inserted to accommodate a range of body sizes.
