Freestyle wing, the Freeway
I am happy to present you my new wing for Dudek, the Freeway. this wing is a small canopy with excellent manouvrability and big safety factor, i designed it for those who like to have good fun play in the air, including elements of aerobatics like helicopter, sat …
Freeway’s performance allows for active flying even in thermal conditions, while meagre aspect ratio and considerable wing load mean stability in wide speed range.

Currently Freeway is under EN tests – we expect a D-class certificate. Most of the manoeuvers will be evaluated as C, yet one of them will decide. Paragliders of this kind do not exit the spiral dive on its own and requires pilot action – that’s why the final result will be most probably D.
