DuckHawk and SparrowHawk Sailplanes by Windward Performance, Ltd:
DuckHawk vs. Arcus Final Glide:
This video shows the Windward Performance DuckHawk SV 15m sailplane on final glide next to an Schempp-Hirth Arcus 20m sailplane in the Open-Class Nationals in Minden, NV. This video starts with the DuckHawk 1 mile behind the Arcus, and 10 miles from the finish at the Minden Airport.
The Perlan Project is an attempt to fly a glider to 90,000ft (28km) in a weather phenomenon called the Polar Vortex. The project has completed stage 1 and proven that it is possible to soar in the Polar Vortex and climb into the stratosphere without an engine. Windward Performance is designing and constructing the stage 2 glider for the Perlan Project. Progress is being made each day on the construction of the Perlan 2 glider in Bend, Oregon, USA and we are very excited about this project.
The Perlan 2 glider will be able to fly in a region of the atmosphere that is sometimes called the "Ignorosphere" by meteorologists. This is because no airplane or satellite can sustain flight in this region and it is basically ignored by meteorologists. The Perlan Project expects to be able to take meteorological measurements that will expand the understanding of the chemical and physical processes that occur in this layer of the atmosphere.
This is the early part of the 2010 polar vortex season from late May to early August. The levels shown are 30mb (24km, 85,000ft) 50mb (20km, 65,000ft) 250mb (10km, 33,000ft) and 500mb (5.5km, 18,000ft) which represents a selection of the critical levels the Perlan 2 must climb through to get to its goal altitude.

Windward Performance is looking to bring a new high performance two seat sailplane to the market. This aircraft will set the new standard for cross country performance in a twin sailplane while also providing a strong training platform. We are looking to see who is interested in this design, so that we can take this concept into production.
Joby Aviation offers a fixed-wing aircraft propelled by eight ultralight 10 kW direct-drive electric motors. This aircraft presents a quiet and reliable means of airborne transport and requires minimal piloting experience. This environmentally friendly personal airplane will require one-tenth the energy of conventional auto transportation, and has the potential to become the greenest form of transportation. Period.
This aircraft is a game-changing technology that promises to improve the way society works, lives, plays, and travels.
