Project Description

The 31.5′ spanned Discovery 13.5 meter wing was developed in 2008. It is a well mannered, highly efficient and proven wing. Although a 13.5 square meter wing would be considered small if it were a king posted, high twist wing, the Discovery is a modern low twist, strut braced wing which is quite large for its class. This large wing is suitable for high altitude operation (7000′ + MSL airports) and for short takeoffs on less than perfect soft-fields. Hands off cruise speeds are 55-80 MPH. The Discovery 13.5 makes an ideal first wing for a novice, its larger size is best suited for winds up to 15 MPH.
