HIKE & FLY
Hike & Fly Range
The Hike & Fly range – projected wing loading between 4.5 and 5 kg/m2 – is the right choice for those who like to walk up with light equipment and have some dynamic fun on the flight down.
For years the PI series has offered the best Hike & Fly package in terms of lightness in combination with a lot of performance and a definite fun factor. The “Light Versatility” motto will carry even higher significance in this third generation: there are two additional 21 and 25 sizes for the PI 3, and it is even lighter and more compact.
RANGE OF USE
Depending on its wing loading the PI 3 makes different demands on the pilot. The higher the loading the more challenging the flying characteristics and handling skill requirements become. Small wings are fundamentally more agile, lively, and demanding to fly, even when flown at their normal wing loadings. You can see the different piloting requirements as a function of wing loading in the adjacent table.
