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.
