The Characteristics:

The trustworthy flying comfort of the Pandion gives you a safe and pleasant feeling at all times. The reliable feedback of the canopy lets you feel the air and assists you in finding the desired thermals.
The sophisticated layout of the lines with optimized line positions and shark-nose-profile guarantees high strength, excellent flight characteristics and a very pleasant handling when you take off.
Also in turbulent weather conditions, the glider flies safely through the air, the canopy remains steadily over you and gives an enjoyable flight feeling. Active flying is easy to learn and first long distance flights are possible, even in rough conditions. For talented students, the Pandion can also be used for training purposes.

The Look

Like all Icaro gliders, the design of the Pandion shows a unique detail of the Icaro Edelweiss flower – selected to fit every glider´s special characteristics and your desire to make a lasting impression in the sky.

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

„The Pandion is a real fun glider! An all-rounder which gives you even in unsteady conditions a safe feeling. From taking off until landing you feel comfortable under the canopy which is why the glider is very suitable for entering the B-class. Due to its diversity and robust construction, I think that you will enjoy the glider for a long time!„
