Gin Gliders’ new tandem Safari has been certified EN / LTF B and is available in two sizes.
The 40 m2 version takes has a 105-205kg weight range, and the 42 a 130-221kg range.
Thanks to the use of lighter fabric on the underside and “innovative leading edge reinforcement”, the Safari is light for a tandem, the two sizes weighing 8.1 and 8.9kg.
Gin say that its profile makes the Safari lively and responsive to pilot, whilst giving a comfortable, reassuring ride for the passenger. They put a lot of work into making it feel like a solo wing: the brakes have shorter travel and are lighter, and take off is light, with a soft landing and easy flare.
