A: Evaluation flights of JS gliders at our regional locations (Germany, Italy, Netherlands, East Europe, Australia, United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand and United States) are absolutely available to pilots with sufficient qualifications. Interested pilots are also very welcome to visit M&D Flugzeugbau in North Germany or the Jonker Sailplanes Facility in Potchefstroom, South Africa for a tour and evaluation flight. Please feel free to contact us for details.

Purchasers of JS3 sailplanes are also encouraged to consider a visit to the Jonker Sailplanes Facility to inspect their glider, and test fly their sailplane in the southern hemisphere prior to ocean shipment.

A:  We do not add VAT to the price of our gliders. For any European Union member state the aircraft is duty free but is subject to VAT (currently 19% in Germany).  VAT payable is calculated on the CIF value, i.e. the sum of the value of glider and the cost of shipping and insurance.
