Axis Mercury

Our competiton glider Axis Mercury II (2011) has all the up-to-date technologies and gadgets balanced to be the ultimate climbing/gliding machine. We are still improving the safety standards, so pilots can enjoy flying the Axis Mercury II glider.

The Axis Mercury II glider has a new profile, non-carbon 2-line attachment system with reinforced leading edge for better higher speed performance.

CONTINOUS DEVELOPEMENT
There will be more info about the Mercury development later, for this is a project that we are working on continually. In the meantime we hope there are as many happy pilots as with our previous mercury models.
