The Monk glider is a type of aircraft used by the Precursor Monks in Jak 3. The users of this aircraft, which were an expedition of Monks, disappeared mysteriously, but had left one of their gliders intact on top of the Monk Temple. A simple but aerodynamic design, using light materials for the wings and an amount of Precursor metal alongside the front edges. It has a comfortable speed but is entirely dependent on a number of Precursor rings scattered throughout the air for lift.
Jak and Daxter found it at the top of the Monk temple after scaling the inside of the structure in the "Climb Monk Temple tower" mission, which lead to the follow-up mission "Glide to volcano". After actually reaching the Volcano Jak ended up accidentally crashing the glider, where after they weren't seen again in the game.
