PROFI - Wing for Professionals
Aeros's wing for trikes is called Profi, and that's not without reason.
The wing has wide speed range, from 45 to 130 km/h, and maximum speed
is achieved without great physical efforts required from the pilot.
The wing has also extremely easy roll handling, with efforts comparable
with usual competition hang gliders. It is this "easiness" in handling
that causes certain problems for pilots with little experience and
for pilots having experience of flights with "stiff" trikes. Nevertheless,
with hands off Profi is stable in flight, turbulence can be balanced
without extra effort.
One feels easiness of the wing's handling from the very first seconds,
and just on this stage good co-ordination and effort balance is required
from the pilot.
Profi is soft at turn, responsive to pitch change. A range of modes
at turn is quite wide.
Changing roll direction requires minimum time and effort, the main
thing is not to overdo it! One can speak about the flight with Profi
in turbulent weather as comfortable - the wing sticks to course well
and doesn't require big effort for controlling the roll.
Descent mode allows to achieve with a two-seater trike descent speed
up to 8 - 10 m/s. The wing behaves well at landing, one feels a considerable
"screen effect" which should be accounted for at landing approach.
You may say, “That's a real flying fancy,” and you'll be absolutely
right. Here it is, Aeros's fancy, Profi by the name. Strangely, after
some flights with it you will love it forever and will never want
to fly any other wing!
