Pro? It's cute, and performs well. Con? It's a kit plane. It's probably been assembled and maintained by amateurs, with little to no mechanical skill or knowledge. Kit planes and homebuilts are usually the result of the owner/builder not having enough money to get a real airplane. This means everything on this airplane may be used, patched up, or not even airworthy. Good luck and enjoy your next cross country, in it.

Glasair is a homebuilt kit plane. As such, it doesn't have "model years". 1988, or any other year, would simply be the year the builder finished building the kit (which can take years).
