- OUR GLIDE : YOUR AIRLINE IS THE NEW PASSENGER GT PRO 2 AND RESERVES PARACHUTE
HANDLING TO THE POWER OF TWO
It’s time for a new interpretation of flying tandem. The PASSENGER 2 brings the agile solo handling to the two seater class for the first time – high turn propensity with low control pressure are making the PASSENGER 2 a very efficient work tool for every tandem pilot. The PASSENGER 2 combines high performance with highest safety and is putting the fun in flying first. The advanced two seater is available in two configurations as GT or Pro version.
The PASSENGER 2 is aimed at all tandem pilots who are looking for a highly developed two seated wing from the newest generation. Agile handling combined with performant glide- and rise features are easy on the resources of the pilot on cross country flights for two.
Chief designer Ernst Strobl equips the PASSENGER 2 with various constructive innovations. The PPN and the sharknose are providing a higher profile fidelity alongside the cell opening. Elaborate calculations of the ballooning in combination with the optimized pre-tensioning of the wing are ensuring the perfect flow around the profile. The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) provides an ideal cross aeration of the crossports and ensures a balanced internal pressure in the whole wing. In the rear part of the wing Miniribs and the Break (ßACHTUNG DA HAST DU IM DEUTSCHEN EINEN TIPPFEHLER DRIN) Gathering System (BGS) are providing an efficient force transmission of the brakes. The riser is equipped with an innovative trimmer system. The effective system prevents the warping of the profile, through not only accelerating the D and C level, but also the B level is being changed in relation to the angle of attack. Through that the form of the profile is being maintained, which leads to better gliding. On the D-riser a special clamping device is mounted, which allows the pilot to fixate the brake lines in any position. Therefore even in turbulent conditions, you can take care of the passenger. A separated A-riser offers an easy way for doing Big Ears.
- OUR RESCUE SECURE
MUCH SAFETY PACKED IN SMALL SIZE
Low sink rates and fast opening are what define the SECURE. The Rapid Inflation System (RIS) designed by U-Turn is providing very low opening time.
Particular ribbons cause that the canopy does not lie flat on top of each other at the ‚base‘, but that an accurate calculated pre-tension generates air gates. Thereby the filling behaviour is positively influenced, especially in the first few milliseconds. For the SECURE the PARATEX RS is used. The cloth was designed by U-Turn in co-operation with Paratex and optimized for the usage in reserve parachutes. It is a tear-proof nylon fabric, which fulfilles the high demands to tear resistance and at the same time ideal porosity, at only 40 grams per square meter. The fabric quality additionally ensures the relatively small pack size of the SECURE.
