Compact and safe
The aspect ratio of a glider is not the only factor in passive safety, but still a very important one. For this reason our wings have the aspect ratio they require. Our design motto is as much as necessary, as little as possible.
Generally, a lower aspect ratio improves what is called the ‘compactness’ in technical jargon, which is the feeling of having a solid wing above you; that handles well and appears to have enough mechanical strength to withstand collapses.
As a rule, higher aspect ratio leads to more demanding flying characteristics. After collapses there is the danger of cravats. Our goal is to produce less demanding wings.
