Insights

“The STEP was designed for ambitious pilots looking for longer flights beyond the boundaries of their usual local site, and tackle their first XC excursions.

Apart from the performance aspect, which is what pilots are looking for in this particular category (B sport), the consensus among us was an emphasis about the flying feeling. That goal was the preliminary to ultimately focus on glider feedback as well as providing the needed air mass information to the pilot in flight. The latter does as a result, improve skills while encouraging the pilot to fly higher and further by pushing the envelope, hence incrementally improve over his/her personal best achievements.”

CLÉMENT LATOUR, SALES MANAGER (PWC PILOT)

 

“The idea behind this new EN-B+ was to exploit at most all the performance features that this category allows.

The Taska design was used as a base due to its excellent feedback and results during the certification procedure. We deemed it to be the ideal platform to develop the STEP and make it a friendly easy-to-fly glider incorporating the key features that made the Taska and the Wild great performing wings.”

PIERRE-YVES ALLOIX, GLIDER DEVELOPER

 

“I believe that it is important to have the STEP as part of our wing lineup to help pilots migrate smoothly toward “ performance-flying” within the EN-C or EN-D category and mitigate being overwhelmed at first approaching thermal conditions. It is a great experience to feel this gradual “step-by-step” progression with an intuitive and accessible glider.”
