THE MOST VERSATILE TANDEM ON THE MARKET
The Tandem is a state-of-the-art two seater paraglider for recreational and professional use. We’ve gone back to the drawing boardwith the Tandem design and created a whole new wing with new line layout and swept back tips for improved launch characteristics and a slightly higher aspect ratio than its predecessor to up the performance.
Every flight ends with a landing. Flying other people around the sky and exposing them to our beautiful world is an immense responsibility and one thing we have to guarantee is that we can bring our passengers down safely. To that end, we have dedicated a large part of our development process to perfecting the landing characteristics of the Tandem. Feedback from professionals is that the Tandem has a highly effective flare and is one of the nicest gliders to land. Compared to the Scenic2, the Tandem is slightly smaller with a flat area of 41.5 sq m2. This is still larger than the average tandem but its larger surface area increases its performance, especially in sink rate.
The Tandem is certified with a massive weight range, 130 – 220 kg, and flies beautifully throughout the entire range. A trimmer system allows the pilot to adjust the handling and speed according to its payload. Professional Tandem pilots need no longer have two wings to cover all their passengers, or risk flying uninsured by carrying passengers that take them outside their glider’s certification.
