ARES - performance glider for cross-country, national competitions, experienced pilots.
ARES belongs to the gliders that has taken very long time to develop and make the final trimming. The idea was to design a glider that will be much better in perfomance and speed than BRONTES, but still, all the pilots upgrading from BRONTES will benefit from the safety margin the glider offers.
You can tesfly and tell yourself, plese contact your dealer for the test flight or you can share the feelings and express yourself in the forum.
