Trevor, you make me cry. I doubt the Battalion Commander up here would fork out the money to convert a squad from Airborne to gliders... but it would be awsome if they would let me. So, what does your glider look like?

How much do you think a glider costs? I'll jimmyrig a propeller or open the back door and light my fart on fire or something to give it lift just like a real airplane.

Ours are cheap trainer gliders that cost only $25,000. Some high performance gliders are up to $300,000
