Flat aspect ratio
Flat aspect ratio
The system developed by Sky Paragliders in 2004 and in use since then. It is traditional 3D shaping of the leading edge for an aerodynamically clean canopy.
FLUX has soul. Our power design team has engineered an intermediate PPG wing that offers feeling, versatility, efficiency and ease of use.
FLUX is just as at home thermaling with the engine off or on tick-over, as it is on a fast cruise with the trimmers off, eating up the Kilometers.
FLUX is the touring motor glider solution born from a gliding pedigree, yet designed to work intimately with power.
FLUX is a wing for Intermediate Pilots who like:

We wanted to create a wing that is just as at home using the natural air currents with engine off, as it is at feeling comfortable under power on a playful cruise. We have infused FLUX with all that is needed to make quite a special touring motor glider. FLUX’s profile is designed to enable slow and short take offs, efficient climb and cruise and a short, slow landing. The handling is subtle enough to core the thermals, yet comfortable enough under power. The efficient glide ratio will satisfy the eager glider pilot and open up new possibilities.
