which starts on July 5.
During the last stage of development glider was tested by Tom De Dorlodot in longest possible hike&fly challenge in Europe – Adriatic circle
"Yesterday I flew the glider in really bad conditions. Strong Foehn, it was turbulent. The glider reacted really well. It behaves perfectly! And it's very fast. I think I found the glider I have been dreaming about. Fast, real good performance and safe/clean. It's predictable and the turn is very smooth. Congratulation to you and your team for developing such a good glider. “
Short feedback from Michael Gebert – German Gradient Pilot
"Perfect! Thanks for the new Avax XC5. I had now some flights as well in strong conditions in Portugal and i am very happy. Easy for take-off, nice for thermalling and flying!“
Feedback from David Prentice - Gradient Pilot from Texas
"I was so very pleased to be flying the xc-5! It was easy to adjust to and i really enjoy the handling! this glider turns so easily.I like how easy the speed bar is to push and all the little extra things that make this new glider a big advancement."
XC5 is a very comfort and safe wing to fly for an EN-D class glider. It has a very good glide, precise handling at all speeds and has a really good climb even in light thermals. Exceptional performance and handling when accelerated will get you easily in the next thermal along your XC adventure.
