TWIN 5 – Double Pleasure

INNOVATIVE Solutions for double pleasure

Keep the well-proven and improve it with the latest technologies: this was the motto for the development of the TWIN 5. The goal was to further optimize SWING´s most successful tandem glider.

This was achieved with an improved leading edge design, 3D-Shaping, the use of flexible and durable rigid elements and other changes. The result: excellent start properties and an extremely stable canopy.

Just like its predecessor, the TWIN 5 offers great handling – almost like a solo paraglider. SWING kept the well-known high degree of passive safety. Fans of the TWIN 4 may therefore look forward to a familiar feeling in flight.

Once in the air, you will feel its great speed range and the glide performance, which could be increased using 3D-Shaping on the leading edge. At the end of the flight, pilot and passenger can look forward to a soft landing. This is based on the great slow flight characteristics, the gentle stall properties and an excellent flare behavior.

The TWIN 5 is ideal for professional tandem businesses. Especially with difficult conditions you will appreciate its optimal take-off and landing characteristics. So each flight begins and ends with a high degree of security.

Next to professionals the TWIN 5 targets all tandem pilots who appreciate great handling and best glide performance for relaxed and beautiful XC flights.

  • Consistent further development of the most successful tandem of SWING
  • Optimized material mix of the canopy
