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.

SAIL
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.

FRAME
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.

The highly-refined sail shaping on the Freedom's elliptical tips ensures an efficient airfoil shape far into the curved tip!

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

Notes from a Freedom 220 Tandem pilot...
"Kamron and Linda, By now we have flown about 50 flights on our brand new Freedom 220.  It is the sweetest Tandem I have flown.  My experience comes from 6 different 2-place gliders.  More than 3000 tandem flights, and I have to say that you guys nailed it with the design of this one.  I found no unpredictable behavior at all.  Not with 200 lbs and neither with 450 lbs hook-in weight.  My students like it for the light handling and easy characteristics.  Tug pilots like it because they see a respectable climb rate on tow.  It flew straight and true right out of the box.  Thanks!"

Notes from a Freedom 220 Tandem pilot...
"We have surpassed 1000 tandem flights and are very happy with our North Wing Freedom 220. It's easy to handle, performs very well during winch tows, has a good glide ratio and recovers very well from stalls. It glides quickly during landing, and the wing performs very well and has a long ground effect. It may be a bit whimsical during turns. We're very grateful to North Wing for the quality in the production of their models. Our safety and that of our customers is in good hands."   Marcus Cueje · Sky Gliding · Castellon, Spain   www.skygliding.es
