Fun in pairs

Parus is our tandem glider with shark nose technology. It inspires in two sizes by having an extremely easy starting and landing behaviour, its extremely good handling and remarkable gliding properties.

Who it's for:

Due to its pleasant start and landing behaviour and the extremely good handling properties the Parus is the right glider for every tandem pilot.
No matter if you need reliable gear for your commercial activities or if you want to fly with your private friends. Since the Parus translates your steering impulses precisely and directly it is perfect also for free styling in the small size.

The Characteristics:

Parus is a compact and stable glider with high passive safety. Based on its modern construction which includes a shark nose leading edge and clearly arranged risers, the start is even in difficult conditions easy and reliable.

Thanks to the easy to handle trimmers Parus can be accelerated continuously as required. The shark nose profile enables you to achieve high speeds when flying at the bottom weight range with open trimmers.
At the same time it remains stable even when accelerated and has a very good glide performance also in turbulent air.
Steering impulses are being transferred directly and precisely and therefore an immediate change of course is possible at any time. The variable big-ear help lets you decide the size of the ears whereby you can descend as required.

During landing Parus can be flared out very precisely even with no wind.

If you want to perform free style figures with a tandem, Parus 35.5 m² is exactly what you need: A small area with specially adapted trim and very agile handling.

The Look

The Parus design consists of the heart piece of the ICARO Edelweiß-logo. This design is very prominent in the sky and you will leave a lasting impression.

You can choose between various colourways. Please note that the specially created colourways are also available for professional tandem pilots that wish to add advertising on the bottom sail which is therefore left single-coloured.

The Parus is a leisure machine where takeoff, landing, turn and speed are covered in an amazing package. A light canopy, with a shark nose delivers an amazing inflation and takeoff. Super pop at the end of the brake range expands the margin for a soft landing and makes it a lot easier to handle. Superb agility for playing makes wingovers and games a walk in the park. Good pressure and glide with trimmers off makes the glider go fast with a very comfortable behaviour. Parus has me (or you?) covered!
