Do you remember?

Pipistrel has been present at the AERO Expo every single time since 1995.
In 1995, we introduced the world's first two-seat ultralight motor-glider made of composite materials, the Sinus. We thought the interest was immense - but it kept growing every year! We witnessed the fair grow from a biannual event in the city, and then moving to the airport location, becoming an every year occurence
(like in 2007).
Every year we introduced somethng new and revolutionary. And we kept the record! Here is the announcement from the year 2009 (and the report following the event) the year 2010 (and the report) and finally, last year (2011) when we promised to make the world's first hybrid propulsion aircraft, the Panthera. And we kept our promise! Don't believe it? Join us at AERO and see it with your own eyes!
