Glasair Aviation is alive and well selling Sportsman kits and continuing with their popular two-weeks-to-taxi program, however the eponymous Glasair airplane is now officially retired. The last kit is sold, the molds are shot, so the end has come. The plane that invented “fast glass” is no more. They will continue to grace the skies for many years to come, but anyone who wants to build one will have to scour the resale market for kits or parts.
The truth is that the kits had not been selling well for some time, but is seems sad somehow to acknowledge that the end has come for a great kit.
