Moyes-GT-01
Moyes GT
 
The 1984 Moyes GT were produced in two sizes, 170 sq.ft, and 190 sq.ft from about 1984 to 1986 when the GTR became Moyes' production competition glider.
 
The GT launched easily and could self-launch in sometimes quite stong conditions without any incidents. The bar pressures were quite high in both roll and pitch and the high speed glide was not good. However it was a great gilder once locked into thermals and you could "make circles and push out" and rapidly find yourself at cloudbase. All done in great confidence knowing that the GT was a very stable strong glider. Like most Moyes gliders, quite bombproof, though rather heavy. Landings were fairly easy, the GT having a quite large flare window, though you did have to set up your approach well back as the roll response wasn't quick.The GT was very forgiving in its stall behaviour.
There was also a slightly higher performance version, the 1985 GTS that had a factory VG and Mylar woven into the sailcloth.
 
Moyes-GTR-02
GTR
 
The GTR is regarded as a very good glider for newly qualified and recreational pilots with easy handling, safe and good glide angle. The wing tips at the end of the leading edges are tricky to set up. They were available as 148, 162, and 210.
 
There was in 1987 the Moyes GTR Race.
 
Moyes-GTRace-03
GT Race
 
The 1987 Moyes GTR TR was for advanced pilots.
 
Until 1991 ICARO sold, in Europe, more then 3,000 gliders (Moyes models like Mega II, Missile, Mars, GT, GTR and XS).
