Our two proven ppw-wings are an established standard for fast, heavy and dynamic paratrikes. Security and stability in all flight phases and unexpected situations were the mission to design these superior gliders. We worked with well-known paratrike manufacturers during the developing process to achieve this high goal (eg. Crazy Plane, Fly Castelluccio and Airmaster), (infos The result are gliders, which have no equals.
