Developed by Sky Paragliders since 2004. Now classic 3D shaping of the leading edge for an aerodynamically cleaner canopy.
Reinforced Leading Edge construction bringing precise tension, pressure & structure.
AYA 2 is our new Comfort Line, a mid to high-end EN A glider, that inspires confidence and offers truly usable performance to novice and intermediate pilots looking for top passive safety. AYA 2 is the result of more than 30 years of experience with the construction of safe gliders that help their pilots to improve and enjoy their airtime.
We at SKY know how important a pilot´s first wing is. It should instil confidence and have predictable behaviour. At the same time, it should be the right choice for many future flights, with good performance and fine handling. An assurance of safety is the key to mastering each flight, while the performance of the AYA 2 and its intuitive handling opens doors to more ambitious and longer-lasting thermal and XC flights.
The AYA 2 puts a big smile on every pilot´s face whether they are a novice exploring the third dimension or a seasoned veteran in search of maximum comfort and safety.
Taking off with the AYA 2 is child's play. The canopy inflates swiftly, raises smoothly over the pilot and provides immediate lift. It remains easy to correct and control, should a gust or a crosswind complicate the manoeuvre.
Progressive and precise handling allows the pilot to core thermals with high efficiency, however, the general behaviour remains forgiving to unbalanced or brisk inputs on the brakes.
The AYA 2 is assembled with strong, long-lasting materials, while the smartly designed inner architecture of the canopy helps to achieve a fairly low weight (all sizes between 4 & 5 kg).
This combination of favourable properties makes AYA2 the perfect choice for novice and weekend pilots.
AYA 2 is a Comfort Line, mid to high EN A glider, that offers truly usable performance to novice and intermediate pilots looking for top passive safety. Its progressive and precise handling provides great fun and incredible efficiency to core thermals. The canopy is stable in pitch and keeps a perfect glide even into headwind allowing for long transitions on XC flights.

"The second generation of AYA is even more refined as the balance of true and perceived safety is now spot-on. We managed to reduce the roll without spoiling the very fine handling, enabling pilots to enjoy even more comfort in flight." Designer - Alexandre Paux
"In my view, AYA 2 is the best A glider on the market. It has perfect launch properties and a far quicker take-off due to its immediate lift. AYA 2 is the glider for pilots who want to keep improving their skills after the initial training. The wing´s precise handling helps to step into advanced piloting." Test pilot - Artoosh Ghafoorian
