Ultralight Mosquito

Gift of E. John Pettinato

Designed for the skilled and experienced hang glider pilot, the Mosquito series of high-performance hang gliders represented the state-of-the-art when introduced as they were a departure in concept from other contemporary designs. Pre-production prototypes entered in United States competition won a cross-country event, several speed tasks and set three world records.

This example logged 25 hours including challenging flights from Mt. Washington in New Hampshire and Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina.
