WHY THIS KIND OF MACHINE

Its take off and landing distances, low fuel consumption as well as its large flight envelope, mean the motorised deltaplane is unrivalled when it comes to discovering locations with challenging land access.

 

Being a tandem, it includes space for survival/ filming equipment and also offers room for passengers met during the expedition.

The machine is under continuous modification:

- The carburettors will be replaced with an injection system.

- An additional fuel tank will increase the flight distances.

- Retractable skis are undergoing fitting and testing.

- The electrical system is being adapted to enable recharging of all filming equipment.

- Development of a large volume equipment cover.
