Description

Altair is a solid paraglider. It is certified A class. It guarantees the highest safety standards among recreational and beginners paragliders.
The new airfoil enables a great handling in thermal flying and it’s very forgiving making very difficult to stall the wing or to find any negative tendency when using all the brake travel.
Take off is extremely easy thanks to the battens of the leading edge -Rigid Foil System- and has no tendency to shoot forward making possible to ground control easily the canopy in different conditions.
All this makes the Altair as the first choice to enter in the paragliding world and progress very fast without any stress or concern about the safety.
