    IOTA - Easy Performance

    ADVANCE launches the new Advance IOTA Series, a high-level EN B glider for ambitious cross-country pilots. Featuring an optimized, low-weight design, the XC-Intermediate IOTA represents the most accommodating balance between performance and piloting ease within the entire ADVANCE product range. The high performance capabilities opens the door to the world of long cross-country flights.

    New Semi-Light Category - There is now a new category called “Semi-Light”.  Thanks to computationally modeled lightweight-structure design techniques, the IOTA weighs only 4.45kg ( 23m2  size). And yet the IOTA is a robust and durable product thanks to the material choice of Skytex 32 and 38 from Porcher Sport.  The low weight of the canopy not only improves the start behavior of the glider but also considerably increases its passive safety and contributes to its direct handling.

    Exceptional passive safety - The IOTA features a very low minimum velocity.  The stall point is clearly communicated to the pilot via the exceptionally progressive brake pressure.  This is all the result of an optimal design of the inlet openings.  The low weight canopy of the IOTA means a very low glider inertia, and the compact overall concept is a very reassuring aspect of the IOTA.  All these factors contribute to the IOTA’s high-level of safety.
