Product Description

Puma 13.5

The Avian Puma is the newest addition to the Avian range. It is a high performance glider, taking much of the technology from the Evo3 and applying it to a kingposted glider.

The semi-elliptical planform, polyhedral and raked forward kingpost make it a distinctive glider that flies as well as it looks with great handling and excellent performance. The raked kingpost enables a long travel VG system without the excessively slack sidewires that characterise other high performance kingposted gliders. Build quality is second to none and the Puma is not only the lightest glider in this class, it's also lighter than some in the class below! Depending on the options specified, the Puma can weigh less than 28kg.

Not only is it light, it's also strong. The Puma is BHPA certified for a normal free flight clip in weight range of 75-105kg. It's also been tested beyond this normal range and has passed a full +6/-3g load test at 120kg, so is also ideal for use with power units.

The Puma is available in 13.5 square metre size with a wide range of options. Versions for powered trike and supine flight are planned, as is a large 15 square metre version.

The glider is described in detail in this video:
