Aeros Company participated in “Thermik” free flight exhibition, which took place in Sindelfingen (Germany) on the 9th of December. Our recent developments, including 3 new hang gliders – Target 21 tandem, a new competition version of a Discus intermediate glider – Discus C and a top class competition glider for lightweight pilots Combat L 12, have been presented. All the three wings received favourable comments from the test pilots, and Combat L12 has already shown a great result in the comps: Mr. Yoshikatu Tonomura took the first place at the Mt. Ikeda cup flying a Combat L12. At the moment, the BHPA certification of Target 21 is started, and the glider has already passed load and pitch tests.
A new Viper 2007 harness was as well presented at the exhibition. Its main feature is the Matrix skin with foam, which makes the harness more firm and prevents its skin from wrinkling.
Aeros has benefited from the exhibition in that from now on we have one more dealer in Germany. He is Primoz Gricar, a pleasant young man and a top hang glider and rigid wing pilot (the 3d place at the European championship 2006).
It is especially remarkable that this year a great interest in our products, and particularly in our wings, was shown by the visitors. However, it is not surprising, since Aeros was the only participant to present three new gliders at once!
