I sent an email to my DAR and he responded with a question. I've never heard of a KR 1 B does anyone have some info on. My DAR wrote: Good to hear you are still working on the KR2. A quick KR question for you if I may. I have glider experience, CFIG, etc. and would like to operate a motor glider out of our airstrip. The only thing within price range might be a KR-1B Ken Rand motorglider... Have you ever seen one or heard of one? There have been a few constructed years ago but I have not seen one but only photos. Any help would be appreciated.
Paul ViskBelleville Il.618-406-4705 --------------------------------------- There have been a few KR-1B's built. They are essentially a KR-1 with a very long wing to make them a motor glider. At the time, this was done so those that could not maintain a third class medical could fly a motorglider without a physical. (Light Sport did not exist in those days.) I don't recall anymore whether it required an endorsement on top of a glider license, or if simply having a glider license was sufficient. One could build a KR-1 and build a second set of wings to make it convertible back and forth between a KR-2 and a KR-1B. -Jeff Scott _______________________________________________ Search the KRnet Archives at https://email@example.com/.
