Does anyone here have any experience with those mini turbine powered gliders or the long ez? I am wondering how much it would cost for nice basic mini turbine powered glider and what kind of range you can realisticly expect out of them and who sells them etc.

How cool would it be to just soar in an IFR rated glider to the lower 48 or around the world, no more TSA or breathing sick peoples recycled air. find airports to land at where you can rent a small car, etc.

I have heard that powered gliders with really high aspect ratios could EASILY go well over 1000 miles on one tank of gas.
