How we designed GAIA 2?
We took the best from the previous model FIDES 5 and transformed it into a new training glider – optimized and sophisticated, but low on cost. A canopy is upgraded using the most durable materials to improve its longevity. GAIA 2 is made to withstand intensive heavy duty training and groundhandling. Hypalon & Nylon rod nose construction enables high shape stability. Simple but robust design provides all the features you need for your intensive training.
GAIA 2 is a training glider for schools and novice pilots looking for a safe and intuitive wing at a reasonable price. Maximum passive safety ensures that pilots with limited airtime have the most forgiving wing possible. GAIA 2 helps you to enhance your skills in the air and will stay with you for many flying hours.
