IOTA – Easy Performance

 ADVANCE launches the new 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 of the IOTA open the door to the world of long cross-country flights.

Very Light New Semi-Light Category

        There is now a new category called “Semi-Light”. Thanks to computationally modelled 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 improves takeoff behaviour, considerably increases passive safety, and contributes to direct handling.

Perfect Balance Exceptional passive safety

The IOTA features a low minimum flying speed.  Approach to the stall is clearly communicated to the pilot via clearly progressive brake pressure.  This is all the result of an optimal air intake design. Low IOTA canopy mass means low wing inertia, and an overall compact concept contributes to the reassuring character of the IOTA.  All these factors contribute to the IOTA’s high safety level.

Performance , Maximum Performance?

Detailed simulation and stress analysis enabled us to engineer the double 3D shaping and surface ballooning to the greatest advantage. The result for us; an even smoother wing surface and more shape stability – looked at from every direction. Your result: even more performance. The IOTA’s balanced compactness and a carefully-chosen pitch-stable profile mean that you can always make the most of the wing’s potential – in real-life conditions.
