Designers thoughts

"Our design goal from the beginning of this project, was to make an easy fun flying cross country glider, that would satisfy the needs of broad range of pilots. As always we were trying to make better and higher performance glider then available on the market. This glider is no exception, as we took great care of both aspects trough out our whole development process. So while testing and improving the glider for safety and ease of flight, we were always comparing it with other gliders and we must say that we are really happy with the results."

Who is this glider for

This wing is high performance EN-B, LTF-B class certification glider intended for intermediate to advanced pilots, that wants safety and high performance in its class.
