BGD Diva CCC

The Diva is a glider designed for competition pilots to break records and make the pilot feel in tune with the glider. The Diva has been designed to have minimal drag for maximum glide, whilst still being easy to handle.

Bruce’s own words about the glider:

I designed the DIVA to be fast, but with the perfect balance of raw performance and progressive safety. The DIVA is designed to warn experienced pilots of light-to-moderate turbulence rather than completely collapsing. Bruce’s article in Cross Country magazine, ‘Shifting Our Thinking on Safety’, explains how “a wing that is super stable and almost never collapses can lead to more accidents. This is because the wing rarely collapses, so when it does collapse the pilot is not prepared and has little experience of how to deal with the situation. Any wing will collapse given enough turbulence. So if a wing is going to collapse, it’s better that is makes a small collapse in medium turbulence rather than a big collapse in strong turbulence. The nature of the collapse as well as the amount of turbulence the wing can resist before the collapse is what make the collapse easier to cope with and safer.
