Solowings.co.za: Microlight ultralight aircraft - aquilla wings

By: Solo Wings  11-11-2011

The Aquilla Wing is custom made and has been refined over the years to provide the design characteristics of strength, stability, light handling and to also have a very competitive edge. We also wanted a forgiving wing, which could be flown by beginners and yet would satisfy experienced pilots and be suitable as a training wing.
The frame is made of aircraft quality tubing, which is multi sleeved, and where necessary, we use safety cables. The wing fabric is a high quality Dacron fabric with reinforced ‘Power Stop’ cloth on essential areas to prevent stretching and give a clean, drum tight surface.We make a choice of wings to suite each individual’s personal requirements
‘Aquilla 14’
This is our standard wing. It has an 80% double surface and 31 battens. It is designed to be an ideal all round wing. We recommend the ‘14’ for all flying conditions. It is exceptionally predictable with light response therefore it excels in turbulent conditions ‘Aquilla 15’
This wing has a 70% double surface and 31 battens. We recommend this wing when flown at high altitude and in conjunction with the 503 engine. Its main characteristic is higher lift with shorter take off and landing abilities ‘Aquilla II’
This 15sqm wing has beefed up flying cables & leading edge spars. It features back – up spreader bar cables, enclosed keel & washout tubes, which improves the glide angle. Its main characteristic is high lift airfoil, greater climb, light roll & pitch and a greater speed range. It is also easier to assemble.
