Wild Paragliding

Po Box: 88

Queenstown

New Zealand

We wanted first to design a glider that would be remarkably easy to forward and reverse launch in nil wind conditions, perform in flight with exceptionally responsive toggle and wing tip steering, and land with the buoyancy and smoothness that you would expect from a paraglider wing.
RAMA Flex is designed for the active beginner pilot who has goals to continue to expand their flying experiences. The RAMA Flex bridges the separation between a true beginner wing and an intermediate performance wing.
As the name suggests the RAMA Flex uses a semi reflex platform and is truly designed for all pilot levels.

 

Design Aims

 

Performance, safety and quality in a wing for all pilot levels.
The AirDesign commitment to combine performance with comfort and manageability was key during the design of the RAMA Flex. The RAMA Flex delivers the performance to satisfy progressing skill levels, whilst keeping the inherent stability required for beginner and intermediate pilots.

Glider Description

 

 

 
The RAMA Flex inflates progressively without tendency to surge in stronger wind or in aggressive trike launches. In flight, the wing is responsive to brake input but without the hypersensitivity found in many performance gliders. The wing tip steering allows the pilot to make dynamic and efficient turns.
The RAMA Flex is designed with characteristic AirDesign attention to detail: Streamlined risers with no split A’s and the wing tip steering toggle, neatly tucked out of the way.
The neoprene covering on the adjustable brake handles add a level of comfort and fit for pilots having to manage flying with gloves and throttle in hand. The dual pulley system allows for low and high attachment points.
With trim tabs released the glider transitions to a semi reflex profile which increases speed and wing pressurization as the wing’s center of gravity shifts forward. This shift inherently makes the glider more stable. Careful attention to minimizing any roll and pitch tendencies during flight allows the pilot to enjoy a calm, controlled flight even in rougher weather conditions.
