Airwave Cobra - LTF 2 / EN C

11/15/08

Airwave has produced its new LTF 2 / EN C Class glider...The "Cobra".

The Cobra has exceptionally high performance for its class and is as close to being a true 3-line glider as possible. It supersedes the top selling Mustang2.

Technology fed down from the Magic5 has given the Cobra a very low sink rate and an outstanding glide. This significant leap in performance comes from two important areas of development.

First the Cobra has a new hybrid line configuration. For most of the span, there are only three lines, except high up in the center of the wing where short D lines branch off to give greater stability. The result is a 15% reduction line from the Mustang2, with the total length dropping 60m, from 385m to just 326m. Second, a new airfoil design and internal airflow management has helped us increase the aspect ratio from 5.7 on the Mustang2 to 5.95.

Airwave's in-house design software estimated these advances would bring about an increase in glide of around 0.85. But software estimations are notoriously fickle, and real glide tests proved the figure wrong. The improvement in glide has been a whole point in glide! Leaps in performance often come at the price of security. However, having been dedicated to the pursuit of easy handling, Airwave is confident that you’ll find the Cobra to be an easy and stress-free wing to fly and as accessible to as wide a range of pilots as its predecessor.
