Swing Europe Salto

swing-salto


The goal of Swing's development team was to design an uncompomising and manoeuvrable freestyle glider for loops, tumbles and other manoeuvres.

The Salto is is notable for its above average rotation speed due to its pronounced curvature and low roll damping in manoeuvres such as the helicopter. The design of the Salto is based on the Astral 4 and it is suitable for acro-beginners too.

The Salto is sold only to people who demonstrate mastery of their glider and hold the Breitenerprobung (second stage of the DHV prototype license).

The Salto passed the shock load test using 100kg being subjected to 10 g. The glider does not have DHV certification.
