Pluto is a glider constructed for "maximum enjoyment for minimum stress". High stability, great performance, easy handling, high quality - what else to wish for?

Pluto is a glider for recreational pilots, who want to be relaxed and safe in the air and aim for some thermal flying also. Pluto can also be the first glider after the course, if a student-pilot is ambicous and well trained.

Piloting doesn`t cause any problems, the glider is easy to handle on the ground and in the air, very easy to launch, it is excellent to tow-launch.

Construction and materials
Pluto has a very up-to-date construction : profile, that is relativelly curved a lot, provides for great performance, turning ability and high safety. Technology of diagonal reinforcement is used between the ribs,allowing fewer atachment points and so less lines. A specially constructed Differential Speed System (DDS) helps to use speed more effectivelly (up to 50 km/h on full speed), same system as used on Vega gliders. Split A-risers are used for easier engaging of big ears.
