A snow slide on Mt Adams. The trip to Arlington, WA was as perfect as a flight could be. There is nothing like the experience of being above beautiful white clouds and knowing that from this altitude if something happens to the engine, SunDancer could glide for nearly 50 miles.
8/14/19: Mike's SunDancer is skirting the Cascades on a flight from SunRiver, OR to the annual fly-in at Arlington, WA. Could the day be any more beautiful?
Come visit with us at the annual Arlington, WA Fly-In on August 16-18 at the Arlington Airport. You can't miss us; we are front and center on the flight line. But come early; the weather is perfect for this year's event, and organizers are expecting 55,000 attendees! (that was not a typo - 55,000 folks and nearly 1,000 aircraft will be at the three-day event!)
This SunDancer is on display at the July "Soaring Saturday" event at the Auburn, CA airport. Unlike a popular seller of ice cream, SunDancer is available in only one 'flavor' - fully equipped. And unlike a competing motor glider manufacturer, you can get SunDancer as a taildragger or with a tricycle undercarriage. The price is the same for either.

It is important to clean and oil your engine air filters on a regular basis, or at least during an annual condition inspection. Simply remove the The UNI UP4200 filters on each carburetor using a flat-blade screwdriver. After removing the metal band, spray the foam filter element with an approved cleaner such as the UNI Foam Filter Cleaner and Oil (https://unifilter.com/cleaning-oiling/). Wait three minutes, then wash the filter element thoroughly in running water. After the filter has dried completely, spray the filter element with foam filter oil (the oil traps minute dust particles) and secure the filters to the carburetor flanges. Easy Peasey.
