Airwave Gliders Pulse
North Wing Pulse

Airwv-Puls-01
 
The first Pulse was built from 1992 to 1995.
 
It's an excellent begginner to intermediate glider. Very easy handling. Easy set-up and tear-down. This is a great no VG double surface glider.
 
Great for ridge soaring, beach soaring (the best!) and thermals well too. Not really for cross-country though! Very freindly handling in all aspects including aerotowing. The Pulse is a "No surprises" glider. It trims way too slow at factory set hang point, moving the hang point a little forward (with some grip tape on the keel) solves this easily.
The Pulse 2 was produce from 1996.
