Practice Makes Perfect and the New SKY EOLE is probably the best Training Glider on the market to get you there. The EOLE is a Ground Handling Training Glider which is fun for Experienced Pilots and a must have for novice Pilots, Students and training Schools.
EOLE is a Perfect Glider for Learning and Mastering the different Techniques for Launching and Controlling a Glider and Preparing Pilots ready for their First Solo Flight.
The EOLE is designed with the same techniques as one of our full sized "Real" Gliders but being significantly smaller, it reacts quicker to the controls, which in turn, tunes up the pilots skill level much quicker and produces a much more skilfull and controlled take off technique very quickly unlike using a Full Sized Glider.
The EOLE is also a must have for Experienced Pilots, If you keep your Ground Handling Skills and Techniques Polished up by using the EOLE, you will find that when you return to flying your Normal Sized Glider it will all seem much easier and so under control, you will feel like you can react ahead of the glider.
EOLE takes its name from the ancient teachers. And following the steps of its ancient predecessors it is aimed for those, who would like to PRACTICE TO BECOME PERFECT. Experienced Pilots enjoy it, as it is so much fun to play and ground handle the glider (not limiting the life span of his or her beloved regular glider) and instructors in training schools appreciate how fast students can pick up and master, safely, the basics of the controls and take offs, even if the weather conditions are not suited for the regularly sized gliders due to higher winds or unstable thermic conditions. Not to mention the fact that the life span of the regular school gliders could be doubled or even tripled as they are being not used for so much demanding ground handling with total beginner students.
The Main Distinctive Features of the EOLE Are:
- Easy Inflation in Both Forward and Reverse Launches, Realistic to a Regular Sized Glider unlike other Training Gliders Available.
- The Small Surface Area Enables Safer Training in Stronger Wind Conditions, Offering More Available Training Days for Both Students, Training Schools and Experienced Pilots.
- The EOLE Reacts Quicker than a Regular Sized Glider, making Students and Experienced Pilots alike, much more Skilful in their Wing Control Techniques on Regular Sized Gliders.
- An Economic Solution to Saving the Wear and Tear of your Regular Size Gliders whilst Ground Handling or Training.
- So Much More Fun for Pilots to Safely Practice the Art of Ground Handling or who want to just Learn New Wing Handling Tricks and Techniques.
- Durable Material are used for the Heavy Loads Encountered During Training and Practising.
- Recommended and Endorsed by UKPPG Training School in the UK.
- SKY’s High Quality of Construction and Manufacture that you have Grown to Expect.

You told us: "You should bring out a real scale glider that will be small, durable and will be perfect for Training and Ground Handling with characteristics of a Full Size Glider." So we did it.
We designed the EOLE, with inputs from UKPPG and other Paraglider and Paramotoring Training Schools from around the World and produced the final result that serves this Goal Perfectly and the EOLE was Born.
The EOLE is small and light, easy to inflate in both alpine style and reverse style or even if you are the fan of cobra style take offs.
We decided to pay particular attention to the extra strong materials which offer high resistance and long ground handling time. So, here we are, we gave birth to the EOLE, which is a must have for all Training Schools and Fun for all Levels of Pilots.
The EOLE is manufactured with SKY‘s state of the art technologies, with CNC cutting devices and automated line cutting to ensure the best quality possible.
The Upper and Lower Panels of the Glider are constructed of SKYTEX Evolution, which is coated with a High Resistant E85A Formula. The Main Ribs and Diagonals are made of SKYTEX 9017 E29A. The Main Lines and the Upper Gallery Lines are supplied by COUSINE and EDELRID. The Risers are made of the MOUKA strap material and the Risers are 20mm in width. Our Manufacturing Facility is located in EUROPE, in the Czech Republic, and the Manufacturing process is ISO Certified.

|The "EOLE" Actually in Flight|
|Please Note: We do not sell, promote or endorse the EOLE as a flyable wing as it is NOT certified for Flying, it has been design specified as a UKPPG Training Wing. This video is not to promote pilots flying the EOLE it is just evidence to prove that the EOLE is a Professional piece of Training equipment and not a Toy which many other so called Training wings behave like. The Flying in our Videos has been done by top end professional pilots, Do Not attempt to copy any of this footage yourself.|
