The Geronimo3 is designed for the transitioner within category B or the ambitious intermediate from category A. It offers an easy to fly, very high performance potential with large safety reserves. If you are looking for excellent performance for longer cross-country flights with sensitive handling, the Geronimo3 is the right choice.
The Geronimo is a B-class high-level glider with easy take-off behavior. It shows a sensitive, easy handling as well as an excellent climb behavior and is therefore the ideal companion for cross-country flights or thermal fun on the flying mountain.
The Geronimo³ has a great feel-good factor! You can enjoy this right after takeoff when you turn into the first thermal. It converts every lift into altitude without delay. Thanks to the precise and fine handling, even very small thermals can be centered and turned out. Thanks to the outstanding glide performance, the high top speed and the manageable extreme flight behavior, the Geronimo3 is, like its predecessor, a cross-country fighter with which you can glide elegantly in over the landing field after a successful XC day.
The Geronimo³ has a very large approved weight range. This allows you to individually select the optimal wing loading depending on the preferred flying terrain. While it is often advantageous in the flatlands to fly with "one square meter" more for a little less sink, a higher wing loading and a higher top speed is often advantageous in alpine flying terrain. As a rule, however, you can fly optimally in all conditions if you stay within the weight range we recommend.
The requirements for a B-class unit are significantly higher than for a C-class unit. For example, longer control paths up to the stall and more benign folding/unfolding behavior are clear differentiation criteria between the two classes. This also means significantly lower dynamics in the B-class. Other test flight maneuvers even skip the "B" classification right from "A" to "C".
For flight practice with the Geronimo3, this means a significantly higher feel-good factor under the paraglider.
With weight shift and control line use in the upper range, the Geronimo3 turns flat and takes every climb with it. Fine as a high performer with only a small amount of effort, the Geronimo3 responds to small control corrections. In tight, stronger thermals, the wing can be precisely centered with more lean, while not levering out of the thermal beard.
Flying the steep spiral is the parade maneuver! High sink rates are quickly reached. Nevertheless, the wing remains well controllable and does not show any tendency to turn on its own.
For the Geronimo3, materials were chosen that represent an optimal compromise between weight, durability and robustness. All materials are supplied exclusively by world-leading manufacturers, with whom we have been associated for many years and work closely together in development.
This is the guarantee that your enjoyment of the Geronimo3 will be as great after years as on the first day.
