North Wing Aircraft Freedom

northfreedom


The Freedom is a curved tip, high aspect ratio Hang Glider with 35% double surface.  Designed for a quick set-up, very easy to fly, comfortable in active air, and performs substantially better than modern training hill gliders.
The Freedom is a modern performance design "single surface" glider.  Full length mylar-reinforced leading edge, nose cone, and a king post hang system provides light bar pressure for X-C flying, in three sizes.

The sail design of the Freedom controls twist to get performance without locking up the sail and subsequent handling problems.  The standard sail is made with 4.1 oz medium finish Dacron sailcloth.  There is also full race sail option, using Mylar (PX10) in the main body.

The Freedom uses 7075-T6 tubing for the mainframe and ribs, imported from Europe, and 6061-T6 seamless drawn domestic tube.
