Emir Sherbi, always passionate with the sky, started soaring 9 years ago. Flying regional and national competitions with the difficulty of getting crew and the annoyance of landing out
led to thinking about an easy to install electric motor to avoid all those problems. Of course, there are gliders in the market with that solution, but the price to buy them from Argentina is
prohibitive for most of us.
Emir, a mechanical engineer, worked 10 years for the National Institute of Industrial Technology in the fields of metrology, destructive and non-destructive testing, product certification, industrial quality, test machinery design and more. He is a codesigner of the Grasshopper system and co-owner of CSGmotors, a company who designs and manufactures electric motors for different types of vehicles.
