littlecloud soaring

One part of flying is soaring!
“TurboSoaring” is LittleCloud’s version of soaring, but on steroids!
Coastal flying sites are everywhere around the world, which can sometimes offer even easier flying possibilities than mountain sites.
The LittleCloud family has been exploring TurboSoaring for a while now, and the boundaries have been pushed pretty far by our crew in Holland.
To be honest, I was quite skeptical in the beginning, polluted by some “legends” that it could be safe to fly in strong wind. After some time and exploring the facts, I now understand that with the right equipment and techniques, the limits of soaring could be pushed really far!
Through the years we have found that a special kind of performance was the key to this activity. Our development has focused on combining high performing gliders with an easy to use a design that has no over-reacting behavior in order to stay safe.

This is where LittleCloud makes the difference!

First, for our soaring buddies in Holland, we developed a very special Goose Mk2 M which is based on the Goose Mk2 range, but at 16.5m2. This was the very first TurboSoaring dedicated glider (for medium to strong wind). This special glider crosses over regular paraglider and miniwing designs. Full fun, great glide, and sharp but forgiving handling.

The MiniGoose V2 has been released recently. This 13m2 glider is based on the Goose Mk3 range, but has a more aggressive arch and a slightly lower aspect ratio to keep it under control 🙂 This glider is dedicated to stronger wind. It has sharp handling and a great glide.

The BabyGoose is a smaller version of the MiniGoose, dedicated to very experienced pilots.
This glider is can provide an amount of fun that you have to be ready to stand… A bit like kiting, having several sizes helps to cover more wind ranges and increases the number of fun days in the year.

And of course, we have some of the smaller sizes of the LittleCloud EZ, which can also be used for TurboSoaring fun!
