Gin’s new Yeti Tandem 3 is a lightweight tandem with EN-A certification, designed for flying cross-country.
Gin say they aimed to make the wing feel as close to a solo as they could – when you fly it, and when you carry it! They made sure it flies well at lower wing loadings, for pilots who like to share flying adventures with their children.
They say the wing inflates smoothly and is stable with excellent pitch-damping, and it performs really well throughout its speed range, with excellent glide.
“The improved second-generation EPT (Equalised Pressure Technology) profile makes take-off easier than ever before. Inflation is effortless and the wing stops above your head without shooting. Getting airborne is super fast, no need to run a lot.“
Gin say they reduced the length of the risers, so the pilot’s hands are closer to the brake handles and their arms get less tired.
The Yeti Tandem 3 is made from Porcher Skytex 27g/m² and is available in 37m² and 41m² sizes, weighing 4.8kg and 5.4kg. They are certified EN-A for 90-190kg and 120-220kg all up and delivered as standard with lightweight Dyneema risers and spreaders. It can be ordered with 20mm webbing risers instead if preferred.
