I am selling my full kit for tandem flights:

- Nova Bion 37 Green (115 - 230kg) with Nova NTT check at 03/15 and no flights after that - 6 months of use, 30 hours of airtime (comes with still new riser bag, rucksack, Nova Backpack L, windsock and manual);
- Supair Walibi M - in good condition, for reference I am 1,80m and it fits perfectly, should fit nicely 1,75 to 1,85 (pilot harness with split-leg);
- Sky Spare Bi reserve (max load 200 Kg);
- Charly No Limit helmet in white size M (always used with hairnet for hygienic reasons, excellent inside. Outside there are some scratches from when the passengers took off and got the helmet down upside down before I noticed);
- Charly No Limit helmet in white size L (same as the M, excellent inside. Outside there are some scratches from the same reasons. The 1 cm crack near the helmet front lower edge is from a head to head bump between passenger and pilot during takeoff);

Bonus:

* A custom made landing gear attached to Supair Minimax L harness (one size fits all) (the system was designed and assembled by me and welded by a professional welder, it is intended for tandem passengers to assist on the running part of the landing and with some custom tuning it might even be used by those who cannot run, that was one of my goals at the time of creating the concept.
Tested it several times on solo and got that great feeling of landing my glider like an airplane for a few seconds. The whole harness with landing gear weighs 10Kg and it's very robust and compact, a little wider and longer than the harness seat plate);

I really think that Supair should supply such a landing gear.. If you guys from Supair are reading this, hey, maybe you can get inspired Wink

Also included:

* 1 pair of Advance rigid spreaders which are installed and have been in use;
* 1 pair of brand new Nova rigid spreaders;
* 1 Sky yellow and black Quick pack bag;
* 1 Ozone Saucisse bag XL for concertina packing;

Only used the Bion for a few months after using Bibeta 4 for several years with the gear supplied.
This wing is super fun and easy to fly, has a gentle launch, very forgiving flight and precise landing. It has rightfully gained a great reputation of its own.
