Welcome to Logistic Gliders Inc.

Logistic Gliders Inc. was founded in 2011 to develop innovations in aerial resupply for the U.S. military.  Our goal was to identify less expensive means of aviation logistic support.  We are currently working on two (2) different designs for a low-cost, disposable, single-use glider.
