OMEGA 8 – Inspired by Success

With the OMEGA 8 you’ll find yourself at the top of the XC league! The OMEGA 8 is the highest performance glider in the serial class. It has yet again set a new benchmark, just like the OMEGA series gliders before it. The new ADVANCE flagship glider embodies tradition and progress at the same time. Its handling and design are unmistakable.

Other important details

Fascinating flying feeling

With distinctive, direct handling and incredible performance the OMEGA 8 has plenty of allure. Two of its outstanding characteristics are its smooth and efficient speed system and the incredibly good stability at speed. The twist on the airfoil’s angle of attack is optimized for stability. Sensitive feedback from the wing tips gives the pilot complete control even in the roughest air.

Performance across the range

With a glide ratio of 10.6 and a useable top speed of 59 km/h, the OMEGA 8 is by far the best performer in its class. And the OMEGA 8 comes into its own in accelerated flight through turbulent air. The solid stability, balanced pitch and a speed system that is fine-tuned to the wing’s profile give the competitive pilot the edge.

Built from success

The OMEGA 8 builds on the proven three liner concept of the 2009 ADVANCE World Championship winning glider and the X-Alps winning prototype. The OMEGA 8 is also one of the lightest performance wings with a new construction, carefully selected materials and nylon wire bat-tens at the leading edge. All these new technologies have been rigorously tested and refined to perfection.
