Solar powered just 35 years so far.

That's excellent. I'm afraid my potential pedal flying days are in the past. I was following the development of the electric Cessna 172 but they hit a few snags so developement was slower than they hoped. They did finally fly it, then things got quiet.

No wonder since Cessna 172 is known to be the most draggy aircraft in existence.

Make this ( JT-8 ) to be a 250 kg empty 4 seater and you'll have a winner; http://www.icon.fi/~jtki/jt8virtualgli.html
