The Nova Mentor has now received LTF certification in four sizes, covering a load range of 70 to 130 kg.
The Mentor is receiving a lot of attention in the Alps, and is hotly discussed on the DHV forum. The German magazine Gleitschirm measured an L/D of 8.8, the best ever achieved by a 1-2 wing.
It’s also achieving results in competitions: NOVA team pilot, Mik Broschart, won the class 1–2 category at the All African Open in December 2007. Claus Vischer followed up in Australia, winning the class 1-2 categories of the Killarney Classics and the Manilla XC Open.
