Flight Schools and Tandem Tour Flight companies will love the FREEDOM 220 Tandem!
Great sink rate, and large flare window to make foot landings easier. The Freedom 220 Tandem is certified to a maximum payload of 500 lbs, and the Sail Ribs are carbon-fiber reinforced to maintain efficient and consistent camber while under heavier flight loads. The Freedom 220 Tandem is based on our Freedom hang glider, available in 150, 170, and 190 sq ft sizes.

The Freedom 220 Tandem is officially HGMA CERTIFIED as of December 8, 2011.
The sail design of the FREEDOM comes from many years of improving sail cut and shaping techniques, utilized by our sail designs to control twist to get impressive performance without locking up the sail and subsequent handling problems. Our standard sail is made with high quality 4.1 oz medium finish Dacron sailcloth. We also have a full race sail option, using Mylar (PX10T) in the main body.
We use only the best aircraft tubing available.
The FREEDOM uses 7075-T6 tubing for the mainframe and ribs, making our gliders very strong and lightweight. 7075 tubing is imported from Europe, and our 6061-T6 is a seamless drawn domestic tube manufactured to industrial standards or to North Wing's custom specifications that exceed these standards.
Carbon-reinforced Sail Ribs (10 Ribs) stabilize the rib camber profile under heavy tandem flight loads
Ten of the aluminum sail ribs are lined with carbon-fiber reinforcement tubes to help stabilize the rib camber profile,
and prevent the rib camber from changing shape under heavy load. This helps to dampen the glider response to turbulence.
It also promotes better handling, landings, glide and sink rate. Standard Equipment on the Freedom 220 Tandem
