I’m looking for a bit of advise. How old is too old for a glider? I have an Ozone Vibe. Unsure of hours but was manufactured in 2002. Last inspection was in 2017 with the result coming back as mostly “Good” but “fair” on some areas. Is it still safe to fly?

it would probably fly like a dog.... 'are you feeling lucky punk?' :) 

Personally I would use it just for kiting,  if you can master it you will probably find modern wings a breeze

It will fly but probably without 100% of original lift. Agree with Simon above.

Any idea on the hours? Depends on how it was treated too, much exposure to UV when on the ground?

I have a Reaction with 318 hours on it that came back from inspection with a 'very good' rating, I would certainly fly that but it is only a spare, the performance of my modern wing is just so much better.
