BIBETA 4 - More about ...

Outstanding Characteristics

Enjoyable working day

Little input, lots of output: an effective and infinitely-variable big ears system with hold-in function (Vary-Grip-System) and direct handling with low steering loads define the BIBETA 4. Trim, with an extremely large working range, broadens the BIBETA 4's operating envelope, and improved line geometry reduces sorting to a few flicks of the wrist.

Guaranteed sense of well-being

Passengers feel comfortable every time, from takeoff to landing. The BIBETA 4 pulls up quickly and easily, and is beautifully stable in direction and pitch in the air - almost like being on rails. The Vary-Grip-System can be applied very quickly in combination with trim when it's necessary to lose height and maintain a passenger's sense of well-being.

Maximum flying life thanks to the Smart Sail System

A tandem pilot demands a lot from his glider, especially for professional use. That's why the BIBETA 4 is made of robust materials and uses the Smart Sail System: the leading edge fabric is specially impregnated, and the Ripstop-Material is ideally aligned to suit the various diagonal loads in this area.

Innovations

Brake Handles with Aluminium Bars

The aluminium brake bars can be fitted at the pilot's discretion: they provide comfortable brake handling, a stress-free handhold and direct, precise steering.

Spreaders adjustable for height

The BIBETA 4 is delivered with hard, soft or soft adjustable spreaders. The adjustable soft supports are infinitely variable to accommodate different passenger sizes. Clever design means that these can be adjusted in flight.

Optimal weight distribution

The BIBETA 4 line attachment configuration is designed for optimal load distribution. The lift forces are highest in the centre of the wing, and the attachment point density is suitably higher here than at the wingtips. This also means that the BIBETA 4 will resist deformation, even after much use, and will retain its takeoff qualities and canopy shape.

ADVANCE Innovations & Quality

ADVANCE pays great attention to small details. Sewn-in compression straps and mylar reinforcements increase canopy stability, and the winglets reduce induced drag (vortex effect). hook and loop fastener closures at the wingtips make it easier to remove sand, snow and debris from the glider. Like all ADVANCE models, the BIBETA 4 incorporates swivels on the brake lines and has brake handles with magnetic clips. Many small but important details like these add the finishing touches to the product.

Certification

Our priority is always the flying behaviour. The certification tests are, with ADVANCE, the final step in the development of a new wing. We will make them only when we are satisfied with the wing, aeronautically speaking. The design requirements we set for the BIBETA 4 have been reached.

The BIBETA 4 has been awarded LTF 1-2 and EN C for both sizes in both un-accelerated and accelerated flight.
