The Characteristics

The unique thermal characteristics of the Aquila is also the basis for the Sitta. The combination out of the thermal profile, the simple line geometry and the feather light canopy ensures an effortless start even when weather conditions are demanding.

The Sitta does not overshoot in strong wind and is also very compact in turbulent air. The handling is extremely precise and covers therefore many pilots expectations: Either flying a nice soft glide over the valleys or playfully climbing into the thermals with other pilots.

The Look

Like all the gliders of our product range, the design of the Sitta is determined by a unique detail of the Icaro Edelweiss flower – selected to fit every gliders special characteristics and your desire to make a good impression in the sky.

You can choose your style from one of those two color options:

The Sitta can be lifted off the ground easily with only little wind, can be stopped in the zenith promptly and the start is a success. The reaction to all line inputs are direct and extremely precise. Sitta can be handled playfully; to kite up a hill is a true pleasure. Because of the accurate steering the flaring works exceptionally well and a neat landing is guaranteed.
