:: Cruiser 500/550 ::

NOW READY IN 2 SIZES

Video coming soon
The Cruiser 500 was launched not long ago and quickly became the new favorite wing for PPC schools and veteran pilots alike!

The Cruiser's ease of use in take off and landing combined with the improvements in all aspects of flight was exactly what most PPC pilots were looking for.

We received numerous feedback praising this wing and the only sole complaint we ever received was the lack of a larger size.

We took our time with the release of this new size, Cruiser 550, as we had to make sure it is as good or better then the Cruiser 500.

The end result is a well polished package that is very similar to the 500 but has even better efficiency and fuel consumption due to the higher aspect ratio.

We are confidant this is a step forward that will liven up the flight for any PPC pilot currently using a classic rectangular canopy.
