Axis Compact 2

Axis Compact is a glider for schools & for beginner pilots. It is characterised by a high passive safety while having good performance for a glider in this class.

The glider is responsive whilst being tolerant of excesive pilot input. The canopy is designed to optimise the uplift pressures whilst the specially designed profile minimises oscillation in flight & provides high stability in turbulence. Lines of different diameters are used which reduce frontal resistance. This increases the gliders performance with no loss of safety. Reinforcement on the leading edge make it easy to launch. The weight of the glider has been reduced by using more advanced materials which further improves its passive safety.

The canopy is manufactured from ‘water repelent’ Skytex S 9017, which has a high UV reflectivity and excellent resistance to abrasion. The lines are a very new material Liros PPSL, with a core of dyneema which offers minimal stretching and much higher durability. The lines are secured in place on the maillons by plastic inserts.
