Model E

Why E? The E could stand either for EASY (suitable for beginner pilots) or EFFICIENT (low operating costs).

E series envelope

Let us explain why. The E Type was designed for maximum efficiency, which becomes evident in its very low weight and unbeatable price. Due to its spherical shape, the whole system is very solid and stable while aloft and makes the piloting extremely easy. That is why we recommend this type to the new members of our ballooning family.

In its standard configuration, the E Type has the nomex base size reduced down to 35 cm / 13.5 inch and only the middle panel on the scoop is made of nomex. Full size nomex and scoop are subject of addition equipment.

The shape of the E Type is rather determined for simple graphics.
