About the U-TURN Eternity

 

The light wing is offering a large safety cushion with a sportive handling. That turns him into a perfect all-round talent for every adventure. Not only beginners will enjoy the ETERNITY - the mistake forgiving behaviour will bring sustainable flight fun for ambitioned XC pilots and alpinists as well.

The new LTF A class wing was designed under the hard criteria of uncompromising passive safety, and still, the exact handling should not be cut short. Therefore the ETERNITY offers an easy start for students when first flying high, as well as extended fun moments for experienced pilots. The ETERNITY transforms control pulses precisely and combines A-class appropriate tolerance with dynamics. The sweet-tempered flying behaviour is encouraged through the lightweight of the canopy, among other things. The reactions are therefore subdued accordingly. The markedly outstanding glide and rise ability are especially coming into effect in a weak thermal lift and efficiently turns that into height.

During the development, especially much attention was paid to a smooth start behaviour. Through a multitude of constructive optimisations, these were perfected. Particularly under challenging conditions, the ETERNITY simplifies the start to every pilot. The light canopy rises reliably, even at zero wind with little effort required, over the pilot. Additionally, the exceptional slow flight features of the wing are causing a low take-off speed and much control time during the start.

The ETERNITY offers safety with optimised performance weight. It is not only aimed at beginners who want to start with small pack size and little weight, but the modern wing also guarantees sustainable fun for ambitioned pilots. The size XL additionally has the tandem certification and therefore offers a light alternative for the double flight fun with excellent direct handling.

The ETERNITY is available in 3 attractive colour combinations and six LTF A certified sizes from XS (60-80 kgs) up to XL (120-150 kg / with tandem certification).

Innovations

The ETERNITY is based on the newest knowledge of the flow simulation. Chief designer Ernst Strobl developed a wing profile that combines a high tolerance spectrum with glide features full of buoyancy. Elaborate calculations of the High-Pressure Crossport Design (DPCD) are not only providing the weight reduction but are also maximising the transverse aeration of the cross ports. How efficiently this system works, is already manifested while the glider is rising. It provides a very fast pressure build-up and gives the wing a balanced internal pressure during the flight. The 3D shaping and the optimised pre-tensioning of the wing as well as the Precision Profile Nose System (PPN) are enabling the perfect flow around the profile. Mini-ribs and the Brake Gathering System (BGS) are helping the profile to more form fidelity at the rear end and precisely transfer the control pulses to the wing. A very overseeable line concept with few main lines is providing secure handling and a good overview during ground handling. The risers are equipped with the Pilot Assistant (PAS) where besides the colour coding, icons are offering a better orientation on the line levels.

 

Material

In the material mix also only high tech materials which meet the high expectation of the long term endurance were used. So selectively used material strengths of the top materials Dokdo 30 and 20 as well as Skytex 27 offer the optimised performance weight with very high durability and form fidelity. The used light material with a double coating is superior in the matter of porosity in comparison to heavy materials. That is now also confirmed by long term results and disproves the myth according to which heavier materials achieve better check results.
