A versatile high performance wing targeting experienced PPG pilots looking for speed, accuracy and efficiency while maintaining a high level of passive safety.
The PIPER is an amalgam of new technologies and ITV know-how. Its light shark-nose and diagonal reinforcing ribs give it an excellent level of resistance against collapse in turbulent air. The PIPER is a comfortable feel good glider in all flying conditions.The use of different materials, notably a lighter cloth on the intrados, enables the pilot to easily inflate and handle the glider.
A perfectly smooth top surface, combined with our new FULL REFLEX profile spanning over the entire length of the wing, provide the PIPER with an excellent glide sustained in all usable air masses. The PIPER’s assets are reflected in a significantly appreciated reduced fuel consumption.
Its impressive speed range remains fully exploitable in all conditions while featuring a constant valuable degree of passive safety. Its maximum air-speed will let pilots compete with and against the best wings in classic competitions.
The improvements brought to the breaking system give the PIPER a particularly efficient TST.
Particular attention was given to the risers. A toggle travel clamping system enables simultaneous use of the trimmers and the accelerator with great ease. To avoid turning the risers system into a complex design, we looked at streamlining the entire arrangement (less is more), to make the most out of your flights while benefiting from the latest technological advancements.
From leisure to competition adventures, the PIPER will delights pilots looking for long distance flights as well as those in love with local adventures or slalom flying. With a racy and sporty look, the PIPER is available in three standard colors.
Without compromising at any level, the best available materials were chosen and used to assemble the PIPER. The fabrics are from Dominico and the fully sheathed lines from Elderid.
We could keep on talking about the PIPER for hours, but the best is still to try it!
