The Flytec 6040 is a revolutionary new flight instrument that brings proven state-of the-art 6030 technology to balloonists. It features a large high resolution graphic display in a in sleek and compact housing that is considerably smaller than the 3040. Use with optional Flytec TT34 for accurate and reliable wireless envelope temperature. A built-in GPS that enables a vast array of previously unavailable flight information. In flight, the GPS constantly calculates the wind at various elevations you fly through and generates a wind layer map showing the wind speed and direction on an automatically adjusting altitude scale. The battery supply is two banks of AA rechargeable batteries and the smart battery technology allows the 6040 to auto-switch to the secondary battery bank when the primary bank is depleted. The 6040 has a built-in 3D flight recorder that allows you to download your flights to your PC (via USB port) allowing them to be viewed in FlyChart software (included) or in Google Earth. The very latest in flash processor technology is used allowing the user to easily upgrade the firmware with a PC when new versions and functions become available.

Once again a Moyes hang glider has reset the standard in its class. Utilising the high end technologies and expertise derived from its well respected competition gliders, Gerolf Heinrichs and the Moyes crew have created the Moyes Malibu – a fun class open frame floater hang glider.
If you are a beginning pilot, you might be facing a task of choosing a hang glider for learning. Hang gliders of Target family allow to take classes beginning from the very first steps and ending in cross-country flights.
The Moyes Litesport is arguably the best king posted hang glider on the market. Designed by Gerolf Heinrichs, the Litesport has evolved out of the knowledge and experience base of the Litespeed and performs similarly to a non-king posted glider, while handling like an intermediate glider.
The Sport 2 is Wills Wing’s latest, and arguably their best, in a long line of easy, fun to fly gliders that offer extraordinary levels of performance. Unlike other high performance kingposted gliders intended for pilots with advanced skills, the Sport 2 is suitable for even a true intermediate level pilot.
Moyes has applied its extensive knowledge of glider production gained through years of developing peak performance gliders to create a glider designed to heighten the pure enjoyment of flight for all pilots – The Moyes Sonic.
The Falcon 3 represents a significant design upgrade to what has been the most popular glider in Wills Wing’s history. Since 1994, the Falcon line has been the overwhelming favorite first-purchase glider for new pilots, as well as a very popular choice for more advanced pilots looking for the easiest, most convenient access to soaring available.
The U2 is a very high performance glider with handling characteristics suitable for pilots with intermediate and higher levels of skills and experience. The U2 is available in two sizes – 160 and 145.
