Eclipse Eagle
Eagle 210
The 1977 Eagle 210 was developed from the SK90 series. The machine was recommended as an ideal trainer, but is also a good performer for experienced pilots.
Also made in 1977, the Eagle 2 glider was intended for the more experienced pilot, but was still very easy to fly and has no nasty characteristics. The unusual cambered keel pocket gives the sail a graduated dihedral effect across its chord, which helped to give good stability and light positive control. The glider has three deflexers, folding A frame, reversible rigging for seated or prone flight. Quite a few of this model were sold in small and medium sizes.
