How we designed GAIA 2?
We took the best from the previous model FIDES 5 and transformed it into a new training glider - optimized and sophisticated, but low on cost. A canopy is upgraded using the most durable materials to improve its longevity. GAIA 2 is made to withstand intensive heavy duty training and groundhandling. Hypalon & Nylon rod nose construction enables high shape stability. Simple but robust design provides all the features you need for your intensive training.
GAIA 2 is a training glider for schools and novice pilots looking for a safe and intuitive wing at a reasonable price. Maximum passive safety ensures that pilots with limited airtime have the most forgiving wing possible. GAIA 2 helps you to enhance your skills in the air and will stay with you for many flying hours.

R&D team comments
When designing GAIA 2 we wanted to bring you the high quality training glider as a super economical solution.
Our chief designer Alexadre Paux describes how we did it:
We used all the knowledge, latest high tech design, production techniques and CNC machinery to develop a smart school glider at a price affordable to the paragliding schools and novice pilots. Better distribution of the load chordwise, less deformation in turbulent conditions and in fact far more logical and easy sorting of the lines makes GAIA 2 to be a safe and predictable wing.
