VIOLA DESIGNER’S NOTE
The weight reduction of the VIOLA over the SONATA is offering even better recovering after deflations and even less dynamic reactions in extreme manoeuvres. So it was possible to rise the max take off weight by 15kg. This has to be seen as an extended weight range, for pilots who want to fly a high loaded, small, light and very agile wing, offering extreme fun.
The very small VIOLAs are targetting to experienced alpine pilots looking for a very light, fast and good performing wing, that does not overreact and is behaving very trustworthy in every situation.
Over the full range of VIOLAs the demand is rising with the wing loading. A VIOLA 18 is a very easy and safe school wing loaded with 50kg, but as well a high level sports equipment for experienced pilots at 110kg.
The secret to develop extraordinary wings is the passion to fly.
We’re ourselves enthusiastic pilots, loving hike and fly adventures.
I have to admit: I built the VIOLA 18 for myself.
Glider, compression belt, innerbag, backpack.
The PHI rucksack is designed to be reduced and light, but still robust and convenient to carry. It can be packed very small, to minimize storage space in the harness.
