MacPara Whistler

Mac Para - Whistler




The Whistler is a glider specifically designed for the new winter sport of speed-flying with skis. A number of prototypes in different sizes were tested during last winter with excellent feedback from the pilots. After extensive testing we have achieved our goals of simplicity and durability for our new speed riding glider. We have designed a glider which is uncomplicated and easy to handle. The Whistler’s brake range is long. To slow down or increase the glide you simply add brake. With hands-up the Whistler is fast enough!

The Whistler is available in sizes 11, 12, 14 and 16m.

The 14m2 and 16 m2 sizes are for light or heavy beginners.
The 12 m2 size is for very experienced pilots.
The 11 m2 size is intended only for very light, experienced pilots and for experts.

The Whistler can be delivered complete with a harness and rucksack.






Manufacture: Mac Paragliding
