Ozone Atom 3
We are now selling some of our school wings.
The wings have been frequently used in our school by the students but are well looked after and kept out of the sun as much as possible. This is great option for a first wing for anyone who wants a safe and stable glider that is easy to launch and will look after them.

Ozone describes the Atom 3:
This incredibly safe and solid wing is designed for all levels of student training from first flights to soaring, top landing, thermalling and qualification. Based on what we have learned during fifteen years of basic and student wing R&D. The Atom 3 may be one of the safest and simplest-to-use wings that we have ever flown, but it is complex in its simplicity. A serious amount of design research and testing has been invested into this new wing and after what has been an extensive beta phase of testing, we are very happy with the results. The Atom 3 is sure to become a favourite with instructors and students alike – we believe there is no better wing to learn with.
In the air, the Atom 3 is simple to fly. It is roll and pitch damped for solidity and reliability, with a progressive feel in the brakes for controlled and coordinated turns and an effective flare. The sink rate performance is suited for ridge soaring throughout the safe teachable window. Even in light conditions the wing is designed to top land comfortably. However, when designing this wing, glide performance was the least important consideration and, as a result, pilots will be less likely to overshoot the landing field. The overall brake range is exceptionally long, with a very slow stall speed, making it very difficult for a student to inadvertently stall or spin. The risers are simple and uncluttered with an effective but short-range speed system that will help any instructor to relax while guiding pilots through the use of a paraglider’s features.
