Business is on the rise at Advanced Soaring Concepts Inc. in Camarillo. In fact, Tor Jensen, president of the 15-month-old concern, makes the tongue-in-cheek claim that it's "the only growing aircraft manufacturer in California." Advanced produces the American Spirit, a fiberglass-and-aluminum sailplane kit that sells for $17,980. A sailplane is a engineless glider that must be launched from a tow plane.
