Taurus Electro is flying!

First release (December 2007): Taurus Electro - First announcement

The only two-seat glider with a 15-meter wing-span is also the most independent in operation. Equipped with a powerful, yet fully retractable engine and double retractable main undercarriage, the Taurus can go gliding wherever and whenever you want. When others will be waiting for a helper to connect the tow rope and hold the wingtip for take-off, you will already be far away and flying for hours in the Taurus. Worth noting is also the ease of assembling the glider. Taurus is the easiest 2-seat glider to assemble, due to its automatic control connections and the fact that one wing only weighs 40 kg (90 lbs).

Powerful take-off and climb
From take-off to 500 m (1650 ft) she only needs 3 minutes, 6 minutes to 1000 m (3300 ft) and 10 minutes to 1500 m (5000 ft). Then, reaching target altitude you shut down and retract the engine at a flick of a switch - literally. It may seem unspectacular but Taurus outperforms even single-seat self launching gliders when it comes to take-off and climb!

Intelligent engine control system
The intelligent engine control system will do everything by itself, making sure the propeller has positioned itself correctly and retracting the engine for you, while you concentrate on finding that perfect lift! Built-in safety will even prevent inadvertent start-up or retractions of the engine!

Gliding performance
Gliding takes on a new meaning when you start taking advantage of the excellent 1:41 glide ratio coupled with 5 flaperon settings and head to your next waypoint… Flying is much more fun in the side-by-side cockpit arrangement where you can easily share tasks with your copilot, conduct lessons or simply small talk with your friend.


Klaus Ohlmann, multiple gliding World Record holder, speaks about Taurus:

"Taurus has some great advantages, which originate from the ultralight world:

- the glider has enough space in the cockpit for two very large pilots;
- side-by-side seating arrangement is a real reward in comparison to the tandem-seating. Flying the Taurus is a lot more fun;
- the ballistic total-rescue system is huge advantage when compared to conventional motorgliders;
- taxi with the double-wheel undercarriage is a luxury, especially for training flights;
- the overall quality and finish is surprisingly good;
- it has self fitting connections for all flight controls - big plus;
- although being an ultralight, the glider feels like a real glider;
- Taurus will definitely convince some of the ultralight pilots to start gliding;
- the price is about 50% of what you would pay for another self-launching two-seat glider.

I am positive that the Taurus will be a success story in the world of Gliding!"

A vroom with the view
The cockpit of the Taurus is very long and comfortable. Even the really tall pilots will have no problems fitting inside. Side-by-side seating arrangement makes communication between the pilots perfect, unlike conventional tandem two-seaters. Full dual controls are reachable to both pilots and the pedals, seats, headrest and ventilation can be adjusted to suit your body size and needs in just seconds, also during flight. A special ergonomically shaped instrument panel houses all the instruments you will ever want without obstructing the excellent view in all directions. There are side pockets for each pilot and a roomy baggage compartment behind the seats with space for an oxygen system as well.


Electric powered
Have you ever wandered what is it like to fly all electric? Virtually silent and vibriation free? With no emissions whatsoever and for the fraction of the the usual cost? Now you can! The Taurus Electro matches the performance of the petrol powered Taurus 503 and not only that, it weighs the same and sells for the exact same price. Taurus Electro with a powerful, tailor-developed 30 kW electric motor and a superbly efficient power controller allows you join Pipistrel's Ecolution of Aviation NOW!
