Flat aspect ratio
Flat aspect ratio
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.
GAIA 3 is a great wing to start your flying career. It is easy to handle, provides maximum safety and remains a fun glider with a vast potential you won't quickly outgrow. An excellent quality/price ratio is one of many features to love the glider.
What are dreamed features of your first wing? Easy to launch and land, very safe, and to pardon the pilot's mistakes. It provides intuitive handling and a great prospect to develop ever-growing piloting skills.
GAIA 3 stands for all that and still offers a bit more. It lets you go for long thermal flights and discover the adventure of cross-country flying. It is an excellent wing to master accurate landing or practise some of the most subtle and finest acro manoeuvres, such as a helicopter.
GAIA 3 is the classical concept of the 4-liner. The four-line design remains a traditional design strategy for several types of gliders, including freestyle and acro wings. It delivers pilots with the optimized distribution of lines on the bottom surface. It provides consistency and safety, resulting in a very smooth pilot experience.
GAIA 3 is reinforced with extended rods, making inflation and take-off easier and more easygoing. The cleaner leading edge improves the glide and headwind penetration performance, whether at trim speed or with the speed system applied. It also caters for improved durability throughout the lifespan of the glider.

Paragliding life is a long journey that you will start now. You already know you will always follow the sky, and this new journey needs good and reliable equipment.
GAIA 3 is designed to help you to learn new skills and grow from novice pilot to pilot.
GAIA 3 is designed like SWISS TOOLS; it's not a super dump glider only for the very beginning - it's a glider that pilots take for Accuracy World Cup.
On Accuracy landing, pilots need a glider that can slow down and stay smooth for a precise landing. Which is an excellent feature for new coming pilots.
GAIA 3 is a design for new pilots. We classify it as a low A glider that is very stable on pitch and roll movement and invites novice pilots to master and core their first thermals.
