Visit with a plane

12.06.2015 - It is always nice to deliver a new harness. But it is much more fun, if the customer is coming with a cool 2-seat plane to pick up the new harness. So happened this days with KLAUS NÖSSLER of the flight school SKYVALLEY. He arrived at the near airfield with his 2-seater black plane. So he picked up a new SKYLINE SPEED harness for one of his customer. And since he got enough place he also picked up our new CORE paragliding harness....

New SKYLINE raked wing tips

27.03.2014 - Together with Klaus Willmann we developed  new raked wing tips for all Moyes Litespeeds. Klaus Willmann and Gerd Dönhuber made several tests and they are sure, that there is better performance at minimal speed, less stall speed and better minimum sink rate! Also the handling behavier is better with less highsiding and more directional stability.  The raked wing tips reduces the induced drag and  there is more effective...

RIP Guido Gehrmann

New HG harness

14.04.2012 - Skyline developed together with Gerd Dönhuber a new hanggliding harness. The aim for this harness was to make it aerodynamical perfect.

Maybe it was because of the harness...?

Falcons

23.09.2009 - A falcon (pronounced /ˈfɔːlkən/ or /ˈfælkən/) is any species of raptor in the genus Falco. The word comes from their Latin name falco, related to Latin falx ("sickle") because of the shape of these birds' wings. Adult falcons have thin tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and to change direction rapidly. Fledgling falcons, in their first year of flying, have longer flight feathers which makes their...

MOYES CARBON FIBRE TIP WANDS

31.07.2008 - In 2003 Moyes introduced carbon fibre tip wands to their high performance line of gliders. The tip wand is the final connection between the frame and sail and therefore is a vital element to the performance and handling of a glider. The further outboard the part, the more important weight reduction becomes. Carbon serves this purpose well and even just holding them in your hand the advantage over fibreglass is clear. Choosing...
