23-02-2009 > Windy. Special wing for ground handling

With the Windy we have designed a simple wing fro ground-handling which is one of the most important aspects in learning the paragliding science.

Thanks to the small surface the pilot can train ground-handling and canopy control even in the strongest winds with total safety, therefore the training school will lose less days because the weather conditions. This wing is very easy to control and the pilots will not be dragged backwards and the instruction progression will be much faster than with a normal wing. The Windy will help you with the brake control and body-weight input to anticipate glider reactions and prevent collapses when flying with normal wings. This wing is not designed for flying.



characteristics

> The risers have been simplified for the students
> long line length to have a more stable control
> It has no external sewing giving longer wear and better finish as a result
