The Blade Difference

As most experienced pilots will testify, the cost of using a "cheap" flight instrument is the loss of many flying hours, miles flown and tasks won. The sooner you start flying with an instrument that truly assists you in making the right decisions, the better and longer your flights will become.

  • Teaching piloting excellence – let Blade be your expert co-pilot
  • Saves time – on and off the hill
  • Works when you need it – long autonomy, robust and best in class reliability
  • Exceptional customer support – we move mountains to keep you flying!

All of which combines to enable better, more skilful piloting, higher performance and the greatest chance of achieving your flight plan, however ambitious a goal you set for yourself.

The complete Package

Every good pilot knows the value of having the right flight plan, the right navigation instrument and the insights gained from reviewing a flight.

When used in combination with SeeYou software, developed for the gliding and free flight community over nearly 20 years, the Blade is the complete package offering:

  • Pre-flight planning
  • In-flight navigation
  • Post-flight analysis
