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 newly designed from scratch. Much value was placed upon the first class handling, which is clearly noticeable through the low control pressure. The double seater reacts precise and without any delay to the smallest control pulses and is therefore easily steered into curves. Therefore it can easily happen that you forget you are flying a tandem right now. Although the PASSENGER 2 makes up for its surface area, when it comes to the performance the surface area has a double effect. The PASSENGER 2 is working very efficiently in the thermal lift and reliably transforms it into height. And even the glider stands solid in turbulent air it facilitates precise feedback and a direct flight feeling. The sharknose is providing high stability and an extended inflow area. When it is about brining passengers in the air, passive safety has doubled priority. The canopy reactions looks accordingly moderate and very damped, that provides calmness in every situation.
Especially much value was put upon the outstanding starting features during the development. Even at zero-wind the PASSENGER 2 fills itself, fast and without any effort and rises over the pilot in a controlled fashion. The low take off speed and a surprisingly short start run are offering a stress free start even with demanding passengers. But also during the landing the outstanding slow-flight features convince combined with the high performance potential of the wing for very good flair characteristics. So the landing will be simple with the
Low weight of the canopy with high durability – that is what the intelligent material mix and the high quality processing of the new PASSENGER 2 promises. The top materials Dokdo 30 and Dokdo 20 are providing a low weight at high abrasion resistance. At the PRO version the specifically developed PX40 material from the acro area is used. The extreme resistance to abrasion and tearing is especially noticeable during the return on investment of professional tandem companies. The PASSENGER 2 is covering a high weight range for a start weight from 140 kg up to 230 kg for one and two seated flying. The PASSENGER 2 is available in the versions GT and PRO. Both versions have the LTF/EN B certification.
