Omega8, coming in June

New Omega8

New Omega8

After an intensive and demanding development process the flight tests for two of the four sizes of Omega8 were completed this week. Thomas Ripplinger’s development and test team are now fully concentrated on finishing the others.

Production will start in the next few days with first deliveries to follow in mid-June 2010.

The new Omega will be available in 23, 25, 27 and 29m2 sizes with new exclusive color schemes. The wing will be available in three color combinations – palm, orange and white.

The 8th generation Omega sets a new standard for performance and handling: with an aspect ratio of 6.8 and a useable top speed of 59 km/h the Omega8 is the best performer in its class. An EN/LTF D classification is expected for all sizes. Like it’s predecessors the Omega8 is intended for experienced and frequent-flying cross-country pilots. You can find more information on
