    Firstly, I wish to congratulate the Pipistrel team on winning the 2011 Green Flight Challenge…403.5 mpg/passenger is truly an accomplishment!!

    However, I do have a question for Pipistrel: Was the guy/gal responsible for naming the aircraft “Sinus” and “Virus” suffering from a chronic head-cold? Perhaps he/she should be relieved of this duty (and be given a nasal decongestant). Otherwise you may end up with an aircraft called “common-cold” or “bird flu”.

    Secondly, did anyone else pick-out the UFO above the ridge line in the first and second photos?? LOL

    Nonetheless, great aircraft, incredible efficiency…keep up the good work!

    P.S. I may have had too much coffee this morning.
