Birdman Sports Cherokee
The Cherokee was a new machine in 1979 that has such mellow handling characteristics that it is suitable for intermediate right through to expert pilots.
The Cherokee sail is built in 3.8 oz material with 6 oz reinforcing panels. It is fully cambered and is the result of a constant R & D programme pursuing higher performance and better handling. The airframe is in 1 3/4 x 18 g HT30TF aluminium, inner and outer sleeved where appropriate. The control frame is 1 1/8 x 14 g and folds with the removal of a single button pin. A centre box system is used to allow quick and easy rigging.
The Cherokee was in its day a great, easy to handle, land and take off. Even many years on there were a few that still fly them on the sand dunes where they are right at home for the low slow flying. They also do not get sand build up inside their frame work.
