Aeros Still

still_1


The Still 17 trike wing was designed to facilitate 'low and slow' flight, be easy to handle, even in slightly rough weather, and easy to rig and derig. The Still has great climb ability, which is traded off with a low cruise speed and low top speed. The stall speed is also low, which adds to this wing's great short-field capabilities.


Manufacture of the Still 17 started in 1999, with a  simple design with open floating cross-bar and a wide speed range for this design of a wing, from 50 to 100 km/h. Roll efforts are low, both for entering and exiting the turn. Launch is easy, and after the lift-off it is recommended to pull-in slightly, especially with a powerful engine or in a single-seater variant. After launching the wing is balanced at cruising speeds of 70-75 km/h. The wing can be balanced at lower speed, but in that case it is more roll-sensitive. Pitch efforts in all speed range (from 50 to 100 km/h) are morderate. Stall is smooth, and in near-stall mode the Still-17 continues steady flight and its nose sinks only after release of the control bar, after which the wing gains lost speed with minimal dive.
