The Saturn was designed to be a new pilot’s first-purchase glider after the novice rating is achieved. It has an excellent sink rate, light handling, easy landability and good speed range with no oscillation tendencies. Using Predator technology the Saturn displays excellent soaring performance while retaining novice level control qualities. The great FUN of flying the Saturn comes from the light, responsive handling, confidence-inspiring stability and from getting above the high performance gliders.
The Saturn is an excellent step between the training glider and a high performance wing. Many pilots will enjoy the well-rounded performance / flight characteristic package of the Saturn so much that they might never feel the need to move up to a "blade" wing.
Finally! The glider you have always wanted is here. A light-weight, inexpensive, easy-to-fly wing that sinks nearly as well as topless and rigid wings. What else would you expect from UP, an American hang glider company with pilots in mind? Ask your dealer for a test flight on the Saturn.
