JS2

JS2


The JS2 has been innovatively designed with unmatched aesthetics in order to create a world class glider for the “every-day” pilot in an airframe that has proven its pedigree in the highest level of competition.

Not only is the JS2 designed to be an ultimate high performance, high speed racing machine but is also suitable for easy ground handling, maintenance and operation.
The cockpit, meeting the latest CS-22 safety requirements, will be of similar layout as the JS3, also with electrical adjustable rudder pedals, easily removable covers for maintenance and sufficient space for additional oxygen is also provided. Additionally, the JS2 will also have features such as heated boots, fire warning system, serviceable tail battery, and a water ballast system increased operational freedom and reliability combining electrical actuation with maintenance free mechanical valves in the wings.
Jonker Sailplanes’ unwavering dedication to streamlining and drag reduction is once again underscored by a completely new fuselage design optimised for superior performance fuselage with a retractable/steerable tailwheel design for improved ground manoeuvrability.
Designed with high performance airfoil sections, available in 18m and 21m wingspan configurations, the JS2 is optimised for the 21m configuration with a higher aspect ratio fin, elevator and tailplane, designed to reduce forward pitch moment with acceleration on ground take off.
The retractable pylon thrust system, using the new Solo 2625-02i NEO electronically fuel injected two-stroke engine, mated to an in house optimally designed propeller makes light work out of take-off and climb for the 720kg JS self-launcher.
