For many pilots flying enables them to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and get closer to nature. Flying is a form of meditation that can help heal you, and we have completely reformulated the CURE 2 to increase performance without increasing pilot stress. It has a brand new structure and a profile that’s closer to the Diva. We’ve upped the cell count to 74, and kept the same projected aspect ratio but reduced the arc, which means the flat aspect ratio is lowered to 6.4. The CURE 2 has an impressive top speed of 60km/h, yet full-speed asymmetric collapses are incredibly calm. Designed to be flown fast, the CURE 2 has a new light and efficient B/C steering system too. We’ve kept weight down by using Skytex 27 and 32 cloth, with Skytex 38 on the top-surface leading edge for durability. When you fly the CURE 2 you will soar high to new levels of performance. Target
The CURE 2 is for pilots searching for high performance and low stress. It’s fast on glide with excellent stability in wind and turbulence. Its high cell count and moderate aspect ratio work together to assure excellent performance for its class, and great accessibility. Bruce’s notes
At BGD we believe in Progressive Stability. Our new simulation program enabled us to tune the span-wise tensions of the CURE 2 in order to achieve the perfect balance between structural rigidity and the wing’s ability to communicate to the pilot about what is happening in the air. This understanding of the air empowers pilots to fly appropriately for the conditions. Of course the CURE 2 has good inherent stability too. We opted to use full chord plastics in the central area of the wing to give it good structural stability, but towards the tips the plastic is in the leading-edge only. This reduces tip cravats, enhancing safety.
Not long now until our end of year trip to Morocco, Staying at the ledgendary hotel Abertih in Mirleft. Where we will have sun sea and lots of flying .We still have a few places left if you want to join in with the fun.
Quite an easy job for us here, stripping down a paramotor top end that had seized up due to the incorrect setting on the Carb. Be careful things don’t move if your stripping down your motor and transporting it in your car. This was a rather costly lesson..
Soon we are heading off for sun, sea, sand and clear skies, back to my favourite training location, Morocco for our 1st Paragliding Course of 2018. We still have a spare space left if anyone can jump on bard at the last minute.
We will be back out to our favourite training ground Morocco 18th Feb – 4th March and have 2 spaces left for beginners. If you would like to join us too complete your EP or CP or finish off your CP tasks then this is the pace to do it. Reliable weather, great sites, easy conditions, fun and sun, then this is what you need.
We also have room for qualified Cp’s, whether you are rusty, competent or just need to build some confidence under the watchful eye of BHPA Instructors then we are here to guide you and help you get settled back into your flying. We will concentrate on building confidence and getting some of your pilot tasks signed off.
Conditions are easy dynamic soaring with a chance to do some thermalling. We use several sites along the coast including a purpose built 800 foot take off area situated a mile inland from the South Moroccan Atlantic coast about 30 minutes south of the old fortified town of Tiznet. Most of the ridges boast extensive flat tops ideal for those elusive top landings! Look out from the ridge and you will see flat land reaching towards the sand dunes on the coast which provide a safe and ideal environment for the low airtime student.
1st Dec 2016, A fun day Today with 3 new clients doing paramotor pilot tasks, theory and the pilot Exam. The wind was nil so it was forward launches all the way, the sun was shining and the tide was right out. It was a marvellous day and everyone had a blast. Its looking like another great day tomorrow and we will be out paragliding.
