The Pilatus B4 is an all-metal intermediate sailplane built by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. The design of this glider originated in the 1960s, when the company Firma Rheintalwerke G. Basten (from which the "B" in the original designation is derived) manufactured the first two prototypes.
Seagull introduces the Pilatus B4 Glider ARF, a scale 3m sailplane designed with the sport enthusiast in mind. Built by expert craftsmen, this top-quality balsa/ply glider is covered in genuine Hangar 9 UltraCote for a durable and attractive finish.
