The Mirage is a new addition to the Swing line of speed wings, not meant to replace the Spitfire, but rather offer a better glide. This is achieved through a higher aspect ratio, thinner profile and more cells. Swing has also incorporated a 3-line system with the Mirage.
With an aspect ratio of 3.6 and cell count of 25, the Mirage profile moves toward that of a paraglider and away from the conventional speed wing planform. This will meet the specific demands of certain sites and pilot flying styles. It isn’t a one-size-fits-all speed flying solution, but certainly excels within its intended flight envelope.
The Swing Mirage is yet another unique speed wing design to enter the market, and we are looking forward to hearing the feedback from pilots who require the flight characteristics it offers.
