FUN IN PAIRS
Parus is our tandem glider with shark nose technology. It inspires in two sizes by having an extremely easy starting and landing behaviour, its extremely good handling and remarkable gliding properties.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Due to its pleasant start and landing behaviour and the extremely good handling properties the Parus is the right glider for every tandem pilot.
No matter if you need reliable gear for your commercial activities or if you want to fly with your private friends. Since the Parus translates your steering impulses precisely and directly it is perfect also for free styling in the small size.
Behaviour of the glider during the starting phase.
Behaviour of the glider during the landing phase.
The natural stability of the glider in turbulent air.
Forgiving flight behaviour and resilience in turbulent flight conditions.
The centre and climbing properties in thermals.
The relation of the glide rate to the sink rate.
The maximal speed which can be achieved in accelerated flight.
The easiness of the glider translating the pilots commands.
The information which is passed on from the glider to the pilot.
The weight including risers and lines.
The volume of the glider packed.
The reaction behaviour of the glider when receiving commands from the pilot.
The agility & flexibility of the glider.
The potential energy of the glider which can be realised.
Parus is a compact and stable glider with high passive safety. Based on its modern construction which includes a shark nose leading edge and clearly arranged risers, the start is even in difficult conditions easy and reliable.
Thanks to the easy to handle trimmers Parus can be accelerated continuously as required. The shark nose profile enables you to achieve high speeds when flying at the bottom weight range with open trimmers.
At the same time it remains stable even when accelerated and has a very good glide performance also in turbulent air.
Steering impulses are being transferred directly and precisely and therefore an immediate change of course is possible at any time. The variable big-ear help lets you decide the size of the ears whereby you can descend as required.
During landing Parus can be flared out very precisely even with no wind.
If you want to perform free style figures with a tandem, Parus 35.5 m² is exactly what you need: A small area with specially adapted trim and very agile handling.
The Parus design consists of the heart piece of the ICARO Edelweiß-logo. This design is very prominent in the sky and you will leave a lasting impression.
You can choose between various colourways. Please note that the specially created colourways are also available for professional tandem pilots that wish to add advertising on the bottom sail which is therefore left single-coloured.
