HANG GLIDER RANGEFUN160, 190, and 220 (Tandem) The name says it all, fun to fly, lightweight, quick and easy to set-up. Fly the dunes, coastal cliff or inland thermals the Fun will not disappoint. The Fun is light and well balanced, which makes this glider easy to launch and easy to land. A perfect glider for the novice, a must have for experienced pilots who want to put the fun back into their sport.

STING 3154 and 168 Classed as our "recreational" glider the Sting 3 is for the pilot that desires good performance with exceptional climb and a glider that is still very easy to launch and land.

Sting XC is fitted with faired king post, downtubes, STING 2 XC The speed bar and a VG system as standard. Classed as our 175XC "recreational" glider the Sting is for the experienced pilot that desire reasonable performance with exceptional climb. A glider that is still very easy to launch and land. Stings have a great name and hold their resale value, a very much sought after glider in the used market. Now that says something for the design! If you have ever owned an Airborne glider you will know how much care has gone into the finished product. It is almost a pleasure to set up the glider each time (even if it's already on) just to see the CNC milled parts that fit so perfectly together. With the release of the C4 you will see we have gone a step further, the sail technology in this our latest high performance glider is unsurpassed. The C4-13, 13.5 and 14 are all a delight to fly. Superb handling in the loose setting and incredible performance in the VG on setting. Take the C4 for a test fly and be impressed.

GUIDE TO ORDERING HANG GLIDERSThe prices lists detail alternatives and options available for each model. With the exception of hang gliders on the stock list each glider is built to order. When a hang glider is ordered it is necessary to specify the part number to: Order one (and only one) item from each of the alternatives; and Order options (including packing) as required; and Order Accessories as required.

Details of any restrictions and/or prerequisites relating to each alternative or option are included in the notes associated with each part. Airborne Sales staff will be able to assist with the ordering process if required. Note that freight prices are not included in the price list as the actual cost varies considerably from week to week due to changing fuel prices. A fixed freight charge will be determined at the time the quotation for the aircraft is prepared.

Step One - QuotationOne you have decided on a particular model use the detailed price list for that model to select the part numbers for the alternative and options that you wish to order. The notes in the pricelist provide details of the applicability of the part numbers. If you are unsure of the required colours at this stage then use the part number for the TBA (to be advised) colour for the hang glider. Your list of requirements will be used to prepare a formal quotation for the supply of your hang glider. The quotation will include: A quote number, (starting with Q) that should be referenced in all correspondence relating to the quote; and Fixed price for supply of the hang glider; and Fixed price for shipping and freight; and A period of time for which the quotation will be valid (Expiry Date); and An indication of the available production slots for the hang glider.

Step Two Production Slot AllocationOnce you have decided to accept the quotation then a deposit of 50 percent of the order value is required to secure a production slot. Deposits can be paid by bank transfer to the Airborne account (as detailed on the quotation) or by credit card using the Quote number for reference.

Step Three Customer OrderOnce the production slot allocation deposit has been paid the quote will be turned into an order and the price and production slot will be locked in. The hang glider build date will also be confirmed. If you are still unsure of the required colours then the part number for the TBA (to be advised) colour for the hang glider can still be used. It is important to confirm the hang glider and the build date is correct, as soon as the customer order is received. Please use the Customer Order Number, (starting with C) in all correspondence relating to the customer order.

Ref: 08078OI Page: 6

If a customer wishes the delay the delivery of the hang glider more than fours weeks prior to the aircraft build date then this may be possible depending on the current production schedule. Airborne reserves the right to review the pricing on a customer order where such a delay is requested. All details of the Customer Order including colours and any options built into the glider must be finalised four weeks prior to the aircraft build date. Orders cancelled more than fours weeks prior to the hang glider build date will incur a production slot cancellation fee as follows. Quoted Currency Production Slot Cancellation Fee Australian Dollars $AU500.00 US Dollars $US500.00 Euro 300.00

The balance of the Production Slot deposit will be refunded.

Step Four Build Complete and ShippingFull payment must be made prior to shipping. Any changes to the customer order in the four-week period prior to the aircraft build date may incur an extra charge if it entails removal of an item that has been installed e.g micro drag down tubes.

CLIMAX HANG GLIDERSCOMPETITIVE PERFORMANCEThe C4 is one of the most advanced high performance topless hang gliders on the market. Attention to detail and weight saving has allowed the C4 to have excellent static balance. A larger than average VG range provides the C4 with ease of handling and a large flare window without compromising outstanding glide performance throughout the speed range. The C4 has an elliptical tip, which in the VG full setting allows a very tight mainsail whilst maintaining a progressive washout line right through to the tip. AirBornes original cam VG system has been improved allowing an increase in VG travel. Not only does the wing pull exceptionally flat when full on, the VG off setting is quite loose resulting in extremely light handling and improved climb ability. There are several advantages using the cam VG system. The drag in the pulley actuating system and lack of movement in the high load junctions allow for much lower operating pressures. The cam VG system also maintains constant anhedral, which significantly reduces glider oscillation throughout the VG range. A combination of internal cloth ribs and hook and loop fastener tabs between the upper and lower battens control the under surface blow down at lower angles of attack. Not only does this minimise glider oscillation, the resulting pitch pressure is progressive and predictable. Wire braced washout tubes (sprogs) are used in the C4. The centre sprog has a compensating system, which causes the sprog to raise approximately 120 mm when the VG is released. Certification pitch testing has confirmed the stability of the system with excellent pitching moment results throughout the VG range.

STING 2 175 XCTRIED AND PROVENThe idea behind the development of the Sting II was simple. The glider had to be quick to set up, fun to fly and it had to look good. The Sting is an all rounder, designed for the pilot who enjoys a combination of coastal and inland flying. Launch and landing is easy due to the gliders excellent static balance. Even scratching is made easy because of the Stings light handling and small turning circle. The Sting airfoil design is unique, giving a gentle stall with positive feedback to the pilot. The glider has unsurpassed stability with a strong tendency to return to trim. This leaves the pilot feeling secure even in the roughest turbulence. The Sting may be set up on the A-Frame or laid flat, thereby ac...
