AIR USA's Ultralight Trike

November 2014

Our Ultralight EGO Trike is home in Boulder Colorado!  It is a joy to fly and is surpassing our expectations.  Great performance, easy to fly even in demanding conditions, and unusually quiet.  For the Hang Glider pilots out there, it's been great to experience that it feels like a hang glider.  Although sitting in an upright position is different, the glider feedback when thermalling is instictively recognizable.

Which glider is for me?  This question comes up often so we put together an ATOS Model Comparison guide.  There is also a new ATOS VR and VRS Polar document in Standard units.

AIR USA flew the new VRS as well as a VQ with the E-Lift

October 2013

We were able to squeeze in a flight on the VRS (aka the "Weapon").  This wing has a unique platform with different D-spar to outer wing proportions.  There is something very special about this wing (more to come).  We also flew the E-Lift which is incredibly quiet and has ample climbing power.  It also was great to see how simple and dependable it is for starting and stopping.  Seems too good to be true but when the motor is completely off and gliding into ground effect, it is still not too late to bite down on the "go" button and take off again.  Both the toss-ability of the VRS and the freedom of the E-lift are bringing the child within back to the surface.  Absolutely can't wait to get my hands on both of these again.
