Optimum wing span and wing loading for every weather!
Regardless of the trend to shorter wing spans in the open class, pilots who want to fly at the front of the competition cannot ignore the advantages of a great wingspan when flying in not so “ fast “ weather.
As the regulations for open class competitions allow to alter the wing span from day to day, we have made wing span optimization for our gliders very easy: since march 2011 we supply a new wingtip for our gliders EB29 and EB28 edition for a wing span of 25.3 m, in addition to the existing versions with 28.3 and 29.3 m.
Now you can choose the optimum wing span for every weather, in order to fly at the front of the competition or to enjoy an ideal pleasure flight. This concept has been succsesfully demonstrated by Michael Sommer winning the German open class championschips in 2011.
