The name of our new tandem paraglider Air Taxi already anticipates that its conceptual design is made to meet the requirements of professional tandem pilots. Wide payload range, smooth handling - similar to a solo wing - as well as excellent take-off and landing characteristics, make the Air Taxi an ideal companion for leisure tandem pilots, too.
The serial trimmers allow a perfect adaption of handling and speed according to flight conditions and passengers.

Questions & Answers
Air Taxi has distinct self-stabilising flight characteristics, which make take-offs, especially for professional use with unexperienced passengers easier.
Its handling is comparable to the handling of solo wings: well modulated, smooth and effortless. The wing is easy to centre - in light as well as in hard, disrupted thermal. An advantage, easily recognisable in gained altitude.
In order to cover a huge weight range, Air Taxi does have a trimmer, which makes it possible to accelerate even during distance flights at high gliding performance. Particularly its landing characteristics make this tandem paraglider easy to handle, due to its brake modulation and canopy geometry. Even in calms and with high passenger weight, landing with Air Taxi is easy-going.
Its particular facile take-off handling even starts with easy lines assorting. The low weight of its canopy, combined with shape-stable nylon rods in the leading edge, make it easy to launch Air Taxi.
Often tandem paragliders are promoted to have a smooth handling - often wrongly. With Air Taxi we achieved a tandem glider with a handling comparable to a solo wing. Its handling is well-responding and efficient brake attitude at thermal flying. There's no time lag when initiating spirals and sinking is subtly controllable and adjustable.
For Air Taxi we have chosen durable, robust Dominico D30 fabric for long-time use. Every material we use is made by leading manufacturers, whom we have been working and cooperating with in development issues for many years. A solid basis for high quality and for your long lasting enjoyment of flying Air Taxi?.
