Our EN A Deck was designed to help pilots fulfil the dream of flying in the safest possible way. With their students all on Triple Seven Decks, any instructor will be sure that they are in best possible hands, with state-of-the-art Triple Seven design. EN/LTF A certification means the best possible safety for the pilots, but our thoughts were everywhere, from total launch and take-off ease until the student touches down. With the Deck, instructors and students may focus on expanding the pilots’ skills, airmanship and flying knowledge.
“We were the first to introduce Back Position Intakes into the EN/LTF A class. With our years of experience with this aerofoil design we already knew all the positive sides of the BPI technology, and we adapted it to attain the ideal passive handling characteristics of the Deck glider. Pitch and roll oscillations are dampened to precisely the right degree, to give students peace of mind and let them focus on the effects of the air around them. To put it as simply as we can – Deck students learn faster. I believe that the first wing a person flies is the most important one in the whole career of a paraglider pilot. It follows that my school glider, the Deck, is simply the easiest wing to launch, fly and land that you can think of. The use of advanced design elements, like the BPI and the mini-ribs, refine the Deck’s trailing edge and overall profile. This has resulted in great handling in climbs – essential for those first steps towards acquiring thermalling skills. The Deck is a confidence-inspiring glider that will help any student learn the basics of paragliding rapidly and with ease.”
The Deck is an EN/LTF A certified school and beginner glider, ideal for paragliding schools and newbies who are busy learning to fly and disinterested in anything that may distract them from this goal. Built tough, it is able to withstand much of the abuse that a school glider is subjected to, and will give its owner many hours of stress-free flying.

The European Championships were held last week in our ‘hood (almost anyway), up in Kobarid* in the Soca Valley. Our skilled team pilot and friend Jaka Gorenc, currently leading the World Accuracy Ranking, was obviously there, and he came home with a silver medal! Jaka has flown the whole season on D-lights and Deck gliders
Just in time for the upcoming European Championship in accuracy, our team pilot Jaka Gorenc (SLO) has the pleasure of seeing his own name at the top of the CIVL accuracy World Ranking. Jaka flies the Deck and the D-Light, both EN A wings from Triple Seven. As in every other sport, the key to
Our friend from Indonesia, Elisa Manueke, became paragliding accuracy world cup champion! Elisa was flying the Triple Seven Deck, thereby both proving his exceptional skills AND the Deck’s extraordinary stall resistance – something that is great to know for all the paragliding students and instructors out there using the Deck in their training. A very
Mr. Takanobu Tsukahara won the Paragliding Accuracy Japan championship 2016 using the glider DECK. His result was 9 rounds with 26 points. His comment on the DECK is that it is very easy to handle because of the good the pitch stability of the glider. Congratulations to Mr. Takanobu for a great result!
Every day we have new pilots taking their first mountain flights, but this one is a bit more special. Uroš is a man of many sports, he was introduced to his first flights years ago, but in the meantime, he faced an accident with a bicycle that left him in the wheelchair. Check out the video.
