18-06-2018 > Bios EN-B: Certification test flights success

First size (M) of the Bios has successfully completed all certification flight tests in EN-B category.

The Bios is an intermediate wing with great flying characteristics for an ENB (-) glider. This wing behaves like a school glider during take-off and landing but has performances of an EN B (+) wing. Only at full speed you will note some differences with the higher aspect ratio wings. Note that in spite of not using light fabric the weight on this wing stays between 4kg for small sizes and barely 5kg for the big size. This is great for durability and you can use it as a Fly and Hike wing.
