The choice of the wing is essential in the selection of a Pendular ULM. If the cart defines comfort and the engine largely determines capacity and speed, the wing will determine the type of flight. The size, profile, wingspan and weight of the wing will influence, among other things, handling, maneuverability, flight safety and largely performance.

 

It is important to ask yourself the following questions:

 

  • what type of flight do you want to go towards?
  • What type of pilot are you?

 

From hyper-maneuverability to navigate and land with precision, to stable cruising flight to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible, a plethora of possibilities are available to you.
Performance flight, short landings, passenger carrying, patrol flight or sport flight.

IPSOS

The IPSOS range is the evolution of the Ghost and Chronos wings, adaptable to practically all existing Pendular ULMs. Light and manoeuvrable, these wings are ideal for movements close to the ground and aerial work such as hang-gliding, towing Banderoles, spreading, two-seater, school, photography, cinema. Able to approach and land in improvised places, easy to assemble and disassemble without tools, the wide range of speed and ease of piloting make them ideal wings for bivouac and discovery flight

SAMSON

With a simple and light structure, the Samson is a treat to drive. Designed for a load of 270 kg, the wing is ideal for very light single-seater and two-seater pendular ULMs such as the Samson trolley for which it was designed but also for many other trolleys. This wing that the PULMA was waiting for fills the gap between free-flight wings adapted to the engine and designed for maximum loads of 130 kg and the very heavy two-seater ULM wings made for 450 kg. Light and pleasant like a delta but sufficiently resistant for the ULM and the possible carrying of a passenger. Able to slow down to the speed of a paramotor and accelerate considerably when the need arises, its extraordinary maneuverability allows it to maneuver close to the ground and wind up thermals like a delta.

ORYX

With a simple and light structure, the Samson is a treat to drive. Designed for a load of 270 kg, the wing is ideal for very light single-seater and two-seater pendular ULMs such as the Samson trolley for which it was designed but also for many other trolleys. This wing that the PULMA was waiting for fills the gap between free-flight wings adapted to the engine and designed for maximum loads of 130 kg and the very heavy two-seater ULM wings made for 450 kg. Light and pleasant like a delta but sufficiently resistant for the ULM and the possible carrying of a passenger. Able to slow down to the speed of a paramotor and accelerate considerably when the need arises, its extraordinary maneuverability allows it to maneuver close to the ground and wind up thermals like a delta.

The options related to the wing :

  • THE WINGLETS
    The winglets limit the vortices of the wingtip and therefore improve the performance of the wing. Additionally, they provide a vertical surface at the tip and rear of the wing thus stabilizing the wing in the direction of flight by reducing the yaw effect.

 

  • THE ELECTRIC TRIM
    The electric trim is a system of actuators and cable returns between the keel and the attachment point of the mast of the truck. By varying the trim we advance or retreat the center of gravity of the carriage in relation to the wing accelerating or decelerating this one. This action has the same effect as pulling or pushing the control bar and saves energy for example in the case of a long transition at high speed by relieving the efforts to keep the bar pulled. .

 

  • CARBON RIGHTS Carbon
    shrouds only concern the fenders of the ORYX range. As a replacement for aluminum shrouds, they reduce the weight and drag of the shrouds for more performance and less wing inertia.

 

  • THE PX10
    The PX10 is a trilam fabric with aramid braces working differently in the warp than in the weft. We use it on the leading edges of the wings and it is possible to put it on the upper surface of the SAMSON wings, the fabric is lighter than the traditional trilam and its flexibility gives more maneuverability to the wings.

 

  • TECHNORA FABRICS
    Similar to PX10 in the arrangement of fibers, Technora fabric is even lighter and its transparency also brings a certain aesthetic to the wing.

 

  • SAIL
