Aeros curved-tip intermediate glider

Not everyone has the desire or ability to take part in masters’ competitions. A lot of pilots just enjoy flying cross-country or soaring in familiar places without feeling the restraints of a hang glider for beginners. This problem is easily solved with the help of an intermediate glider. Such gliders combine rather high performance with simple piloting and maintaining. They are more comfortable in the air than competitive gliders and easier to land.

Aeros team is glad to present Discus, which is our first really intermediate glider.

Aeros has been working on an intermediate design for about 3 years, but had not made it the priority that was warranted. The first prototype of the current design was flying in the spring of 2002 and U.S. Aeros received the first prototype during the summer for testing. After receiving this glider, U.S. Aeros’ VP, Sunny Venesky worked with the designers at the Aeros factory to fine tune the glider to get it ready for the market – keeping in mind the criteria needed to make this glider a ‘big hit’. That criteria being:

  • very stable on tow (without a fin)

  • very stable in roll – mindlessly predictable handling
  • very easy to land
  • vg operation that actually does something

    The result is a glider that we’re extremely proud of. The Discus is a very stable glider with respectable performance, and the easiest to land glider that Aeros has ever produced!

    Discus’ design is unusual for Aeros wings. It’s our first glider with curved tips. That was a successful debut: a balanced compromise between stability and controllability makes the glider affordable for pilots who have just learned soaring and pleasant for experienced masters. The wing is comfortable to fly and easy to land, it has wide speed range. Moreover, it is very stable on tow.
    The variable geometry mechanism allows to control sail tension in the air, optimizing the glider’s configuration according to flight condition.

    Features include: curve tips, wire braced washout tube – allowing for reduction in reflex bridles, Aeros’ impeccable sail work, standard with Finsterwalder aerofoil hardware and speedbar, is available in an optional 2.4 m (7 ft.) breakdown length.

    Our research on this prototype has us expecting many advanced pilots to sell their topless wings and
    go back to a glider that is fun, easy to fly and land as well as very respectable in performance.

    You can believe us when we tell you that this glider may outshine the leading competitors at this market.

    The glider is available in two modifications: A and B.
    - Discus A breakdown length is 4 meters;
    - Discus B breakdown length is 2.4 meters.

    A Discus M version is also offered. This modification has a keel tube design that allows to use this hang glider with motorized harnesses like Mosquito, Doodlebug and so on. The frame has no additional reinforcement at all, so the allowable hook-in weight fork is the same as a standard Fox has.

    A Discus 15T wing will be a wonderful choice for a nanolight single-seater trike. This wing utilizes reinforced frame, trike attachment bracket and the control bar shifted backwards.

    From the flying season 2006 a Discus version with aluminum airfoil speedbar and basetubes with reduced aerodynamical resistance is available. You can either order the modified Discus, or purchase an option (a speedbar, basetubes, lower wires and a keel tube) to upgrade the glider yourself.
