The 1980 Comet was for advanved pilots. The early Airwave-built Comet 165 was very soft, predictable handling in roll and a really good sink rate. Exceptionally easy to land with a soft, progressive approach to the stall.
 
All these gliders were built by Dick Cheney out of Layton UT.
 
The Comet 2 appeared in 1983.
