THE TRUSTWORTHY CLIMBER
Our new basic intermediate Pandion succeeds our Instinct TE with a completely new concept – rich and comfortable flight feeling according to the latest technology. The Pandion allows fast progress at developing flying skills without having to make compromises as far as safety is concerned.
The trustworthy flying comfort of the Pandion gives you a safe and pleasant feeling at all times. The reliable feedback of the canopy lets you feel the air and assists you in finding the desired thermals.
The sophisticated layout of the lines with optimized line positions and shark-nose-profile guarantees high strength, excellent flight characteristics and a very pleasant handling when you take off.
Also in turbulent weather conditions, the glider flies safely through the air, the canopy remains steadily over you and gives an enjoyable flight feeling. Active flying is easy to learn and first long distance flights are possible, even in rough conditions. For talented students, the Pandion can also be used for training purposes.
