Large Baggage Door for the GlaStar

GlaStar enlarged cargo door modification

If you ever thought about installing a larger cargo door for your GlaStar, now is your chance to do it.


Glastar large cargo door modWhen the Glasair factory was developing the Sportsman, they tested a GlaStar with a large rear door to Sportsman structural loads and it passed with flying colors. Recently Ted Setzer, Glasair’s R&D guru visited a builder in Africa and helped him install a large rear door on his GlaStar, and now Ted is proposing to build a retrofit kit for an enlarged rear door for existing GlaStars. The story about this mod is in the 4th Quarter 2012 GAOA Flyer.

Think of the possibilities – jump seat passengers, easy access for dogs, easy loading of baggage and folding bikes, and even your back will thank you.
