Glider Aircraft Market
In most developing countries, glider aircraft now account for a significant percentage of the civilian-owned aircraft. For instance in Canada in February 2018, the glider aircraft fleet made up to 20.4% of the total civilian aircraft registered. In other countries that do not register glider aircraft, like the United States, it is unknown what proportion of the total fleet they make up. Moreover, in countries where there is no specific extra regulation, glider aircraft are considered as regular aircraft and are subject to certification requirements for both aircraft and pilot.
Advancement in Power Supply
Advancements in batteries, motors, and motor controllers has led to some practical production of electric propulsion systems for some glider aircraft applications. In many ways, glider aircraft is a good application of electric power, as some models are capable of flying with low power, which allows longer duration of flights on battery power.
In 2007, the first pioneering company in this field, the Electric Aircraft Corporation, began to offer engine kits, to convert ultralight weight shift trikes to electric power. The battery consists of a lithium-polymer battery pack of 5.6kWh, which provides 1.5 hours of flying in the trike application. A significant obstacle for the adoption of electric propulsion for ultralights in the United States, is the weight of the battery. The battery is considered as part of the empty weight of the aircraft, despite of the efforts made to consider it as a fuel. Lighter batteries are used to improve battery energy density.
