Hi Harsha - Welcome! You have recieved good advice from John, and I can't really add anything better, though I wonder whether an electric power-assist glider would work well in your situation - then you don't need the Hi-start/winch, tow-plane or the perfect slope?

"Old" is only in the mind. You are still a kid in my book, as evidenced by the fact that you grew up flying glow - when I began flying powered aircraft (C/L) in '62, glow engines were a new concept which had not even reached New Zealand - we used only diesels (one of my Oliver Tiger Mk III's, now 45-50 years old still runs well!).

Cheers, Phil
