“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” Leonardo da Vinci

The ALTIRANDO 3 is our reversible of choice. From one generation to the next, it becomes safer and more comfortable.

Three key points guided this new development:

  • 
 A pre-inflated and efficient AirBag at takeoff before being inflated by the relative wind.

  •  A new easier and safer parachute pocket with visual control of the safety locking mechanism.

  •  A volume and design with a better aerodynamic profile, notably a more compact AirBag shape.

In backpack version, the volume is slightly more fitted than with the ALTIRANDO2RS. Weight-bearing is efficiently distributed between the padded waist strap and the backrest with its load adjustment straps and compression straps.
During takeoff, the transition from running to sitting is evident. In flight, the adjustments and the geometry of the harness enable greater comfort adaptation to the pilot’s contour and flight posture: the backrest can be configured to adopt an upright position or more reclined, especially when using a foot-rest. The seat extension enables the pilot to adjust his body position toward the front of the seat-plate if necessary. Another adjustment enables fine-tuning of the seat depth to better fit the pilot’s body contour.
Complete safety with: a very efficient AirBag immediately working during the takeoff phase, an ABS ( Anti Balancing System ), leg straps with the Safe-T system, and a well located, easy to access reserve parachute pocket.
