Queen uses the spring in the Alps

We have sent a Rook2 down to famous Mr. Ziad Bassil to make a test and review of our new EN/LTF B wing. We where eagerly waiting to hear what will this independent test Spring as every year provided few exceptional days for XC flights, which some pilots got really good use off.
Peter Walner took his Queen for an epic triangle of 220 km from Ahornach Acereto in Italy and stretched his flight over to Austria and back. His comment on Queen is confirmation to many with stable canopy that makes you go fast with safe felling.
- You can check his flight http://xcglobe.com/olc/index.php/catalog/?tview=flights&act=submit&dt=19.04.2015&site=&club=&gtype=0&interval=1&sort_type=date&ww=0#si&flights&1624623&map

Our team pilot Robert Heim was able to make another exceptional flight, making an Austrian record with out and return flight of 234 km. He did not stopped there and made a 200 km triangle flight afterwards again.
- record flight can be found http://xcglobe.com/olc/index.php/catalo ... 422490&map
- 200 km triangle http://xcglobe.com/olc/index.php/catalog/?tview=flights&act=submit&dt=19.04.2015&site=&club=&gtype=0&interval=1&sort_type=date&ww=0#si&flights&1665397&map

Queen still rules its class for sure :)


Rook2, first flight first 200 km

Our team pilot from Portugal, Rui Nascimento received his Rook2 wing and when he went for the first flight, he flew over 200km. Here is his comment on the wing:

The take off is a non event, very easy. Also, it was easy to climb but i had some hard job get off the Serra Estrela mountain. After going to the flat land I had cloud everywhere with big cumulus. In my 100 km, the cumulus became CB with rain but I had always a blue sky to run from the clouds.

I was flying with some Niviuk Icepeak 6 and 7 and i never notice that they were better than me. I can say that the thermal ability of the Rook2 is very good and i outclimbed my friends for several times.

Rook2 makes you feel like at home already with the first flight.

We are happy to announce that Nicole Fedele reached her goal in Quixada, flying a new World record with her brand new King. She is now first ever woman to fly over 400 km.

Yesterday was my day! It has been a very windy day with some difficulties along the course. I had a couple of low saves in turbolent conditions and the King helped me a lot with great stability and excellent climb capacities in every situation. The average speed over 401km was surprisingly high, approx 45km/h. I am very happy, looking forward for the next flight with my King!

Check her tracklog http://www.xcontest.org/world/en/flights/detail:nicole/3.11.2015/10:10.

Kings really rulled this day in Brasil as Adam Grzech managed to get even few kilometers further making two Kings flying further than anyone else on that day in the world.

Big congrats to both for amazing flying!

Triple Seven KING ! S & M

Triple Seven gliders was founded by two PWC flying brothers, that used to work with several manufacturers and their reputation at the time was the fast flying ability and the competition at the highest level.

Triple Seven was born and their first products in the B and C category were the Rook 1 and the amazing Queen which still has the best glide at full speed for a C glider !
Then came the Rook 2 which sits on the top places with the best performers in the B category with a very good accessibility.
The gliders made by the Valic brothers, seems to inherit a high performance aim with a relatively comfortable handling each in their respective category.

Now the King EN-D is here…
The King has a strong shark nose with a 3 line layout. The lower lines are small but sheathed, the mid and upper ones are thin and unsheathed, and the extremities + the brake line geometry are very thin micro lines.
I have the S size (75-95) which i flew from 90 all up till 95, and the M size (90-110) flown at 107.5 all up.
My recent D gliders for this comparison are: The Mantra 6 SM and ML, the Peak 4 21 and 23 , the Avax XC 5 26, the IP 6 23 .

Launching the King S and M in, 5 km/h to + 15 km/h , needs a steady pull to accompany the glider. It’s a slightly slower than an M6 to reach overhead, but it’s surely very easy for a D glider as it goes up in one compact piece !

Flying the King S with the same X-Rated 6 harness i used for all the mentioned gliders, showed me at 93 all up, a moderate to agile glider and could be similar to the Mantra 6 SM agility flown at the same weight also.
The brake travel is short to moderate, resembling also the M6 SM brake travel .
The differences in thermal entry is that the King S pitches slightly back a little before entering.
The King M flown at 108 doesn’t have that pronounced pitch back movement and gives a neutral one instead.
The King could be described as a comfortable D glider when flown in moderate turbulence.
Flying the glider is some nasty ‘winter’ turbulent air, the King needs more active piloting than a Mantra 6 MS and slightly less piloting than a Peak 4 21 i was test flying at the same time.
The glider movements in some lee side thermals are sharp with always a marked back pitch on the S rather than a forward pitch. The M size showed me a more neutral pitch.
Of course sometimes it pulls you to the thermals, but in the relatively “moderate” turbulence conditions i flew it in, (only the summer conditions will give a better idea) , i found it easy to control the forward pitch, and in some macaroni stuff, i wished for a more neutral pitch on the S size.

The climb rate performance for both the S and the M size in very weak thermals (0.3m/s) is moderate to good resembling the Peak 4 one.
Once the thermals are steady and homogenous the very good maneuverability of the King doesn’t loose any weak thermal, and the flat turning ability, helps immensely to stay in the core. It has much better climb than the Queen in small conditions even loaded.
In those very weak conditions the M6 could still have a slight insignificant edge in float-ability…But i’m being too picky…as you already know Wink

Now comes the glide part.
Doing some glides with the M6, Peak 4, IP 6, showed me for several times a superiority in gliding power for the King S and for sure the M size !
For instance the M6, MS (80-95) at 93 compared to the King M (90-110) flown at 108, gave the King a full + 2 km/h trim speed and for sure an impressive glide angle, like from another dimension ! It looked like chasing a full CCC competition glider !
Flying the King S (75-95) at 93 all up next to a Peak 4 23 (85-105), gave me the same big visual advantage in glide for the King S and as we both used the speed bar, the differences became larger to my favor !
The top speed of the Peak 4 23 is still around +3 km/h more similarly loaded versus the King S size.
I found it that especially around 45- 47 km/h the king glide angle is remarkably better !
I was never expecting a clear visual glide difference ! Usually there’s a small glide difference between newly tested gliders.But not this time !
The King does have indeed an amazing glide…or should i say:
The glide angle is worthy of a King ! Smile
The IP 6 23, still has also more top speed (+ 6 km/h) , over the King S, followed by the M6 (+ 2 km/h) .
I measured the King S top speed at 1000 ASL with 93 all up around 56 km/h with overlapping pulleys.
The glide at that speed is very nice, but i felt that the best glide is around ± 46 km/h for the S size which many XC pilots use frequently.
I found that racing at that speed through moderate turbulent air is quite usable as i was able to keep my feet on the pedal.

Big ears are easy to induce with a stable behavior and efficient descent rate at -3m/s with full bar.
They open smoothly !

Conclusion:
The King is the new reference in gliding power in the D category .
It seems that Triple Seven has built a powerful, fairly accessible, agile, gliding machine for “experienced” D pilots.
Upgrading from the Queen is logical if it was already flown easily for two seasons in strong conditions.
I’m sure that any C or D pilot test flying the King, will be shocked by this superb gliding Albatros Wink

Videos soon....
Cheers,
Ziad.

The Deck

At Triple Seven gliders we are expanding the range of our products with a new EN/LTF A wing. The Deck is here, ready to satisfy any instructor's need of relaxed teaching on the training hill, as well as later in the air. The new pilots can be sure that with the Deck, they will have safest and most forgiving wing above their head which one will teach them all the skills needed to build up the new successful path in paragliding.

The Deck already passed the flight test in M size of course with a strict low A certification.Â

When designing it we had in mind the pilots safety feel under the wing but at the same time we managed to make a wing with best possible price ratio so that you can offer a good quality package to the school at a decent pricing. We managed to make a simple construction of the canopy with only 29 cells but at the same time, use of mini ribs refined the trailing edge, making the wing really nice in turns and with privileged performance. Â
For sure this is the best package for a student to build its way to paragliding world in safest possible manner.

Deck is coming in three sizes:
S (60-85kg)
M (80-105kg)
L (100-125kg)

The Deck can be ordered now for your potential customers and of course, to see it for yourself what an amazing achievement has come off the hands of Valič brothers yet again.

The new D-light
The world of Hike&Fly is expanding the boundaries of what paragliding is, and whom it is for. At Triple Seven, we believe that this is a great thing, and we wish to make the ultimate mountain freedom available to even more people; by making our lightweight gliders super accessible, and also by introducing the D-light, an easy EN A wing made light (the S size weighs just 2.7kgs!!).

The new D-light inherits a lot of technology from its higher-rated brothers and sisters, meaning that even though it is an EN A wing, it is also a modern and advanced paraglider, capable of carrying its pilot on all sorts of exciting adventures. It is primarily designed for the lightweight-oriented beginner, but it is perfectly capable of much more than an evening fly-down from some Alpine peak.

The D-light will be available in two sizes (S and M). Both of the sizes already passed the flight test and are waiting for the paperwork for the certification. The D-light can be already ordered.

S 60-85 kg
M 80-105 kg

Queen2 and the Knight

Dear 777 dealers.
As is often the case during the development phase of new high-performance paragliders, our R&D team have found further details to improve in their work on the new Queen 2 and the Knight. After weighing the pros and cons, we decided to give them the time they need to make the best glider possible, rather than drawing a hard deadline in the sand and releasing a new wing which could be even better. This means that we have a few weeks' delay from planned March release date. By accepting this delay we feel that we ultimately get an even better wing - and that means a lot to us!
We realize that many of you are already impatient, and we understand this! We feel the same, but it wouldn't be a Triple Seven wing if it wasn't the very best wing we can make at any given point in time! So please be patient for just another few short week-s. We'll be on the case night and day, and we'll keep you all updated!

New brain power

We're excited to announce a new addition to our global Sales and Marketing team; Mads Syndergaard from Denmark is joining us to enhance our global sales work! Mads joins us from a similar position with UP, and will work closely with Matjaz to expand our brand recognition and not least our dealer network, both globally and in Central Europe. He'll also be helping us with the Social Media presence and manage the team activities.

Mads is fluent in several languages, likes photography and videography, and his flying heart beats for competition paragliding. We think he'll make a great Triple Seven team member, and we look forward to working with him.

A knight to look after you...
Everyone needs a Knight in shining armor to look out for them once in a while - so we went and built one for you...

The new Knight fills the gap between the Pawn and the Rook2 in the Triple Seven model range. With the former being a dedicated school wing, and the latter an advanced XC machine of the finest caliber, the step up from one to the other was simply too great if you wanted to remain on a Triple Seven glider, and the Knight was born. The new wing is made to make the entry into the world of thermal- and XC flying as easy, intuitive and safe as possible, and has ample performance to make every one of those first adventurous flights into an unmitigated pleasure, from the first modest beeps on the vario and all the way into flights worthy of the Worldwide X-Contest.

At Triple Seven we think of this new wing as the ideal "weekend warrior" tool; plenty of performance to allow such a pilot to reach their lofty flying goals, but not so twitchy as to put them off trying... We achieved this balance by taking all the best from the gliders both above and below the Knight in our model range and mixing these characteristics together into Mini-ribs cocktail worthy of even quite discerning pilots' admiration and respect. This means that the Knight sports design features such as mini ribs in the trailing edge, the Triple Seven Back Position Air Intakes, long speed system travel, direct and progressive handling and much more.

- Back Position Air Intakes. for perfect internal pressure at all angles of attack
- Mini-ribs in the trailing edge, for better trailing edge definition and reduced ballooning
- Optimized mix of line diameters and materials, for top performance with maximum longevity and safety
- Refined wingtip design, for minimal induced drag and intuitive handling
- Aerofoil optimized for great climbing
- Trim speed adapted to the pilot target group; fast, but not so fast as to be demanding to launch and land...
- Dokdo 30 in the leading edge, DOKDO 20 for the rest - light but strong construction
- EN B certification


Aljaz Valic:

"As soon as we realized that the gap between the Pawn and the Rook 2 was too great we started thinking of the perfect wing to bridge that gap. With the Knight we're pretty sure we have accomplished what we set out to do; to build a wing which is suitable for just about everyone who loves paragliding, but who doesn't want too much mental workload during their thermal- and XC flights. Very few of us fly as much as we would like to, so when we do get out we want the day to be perfect, and the Knight can help with that!"

The Knight is for certified pilots with a desire to build up their air time and experience on progressively longer and more difficult flights, without getting flustered along the way. It is suitable for just about anyone, from talented pilots straight out of school to ambitious XC pilots wishing to expand their boundaries in comfort and safety.

Prenosim sa Ziad Basil FB-a:https://web.facebook.com/Dustoftheuniverse/posts/1825609400788667?_rdc=1&_rdr

Triple Seven Knight ( And shining Armour)

And the Knight came…
Back positioning system (Shark nose) , 5.4 aspect ratio, 3.8 AR projected. If you hold and look only at the lines and risers, you think you are on the 777 King. Unsheathed lines on top and regular on the lower part with exactly the same width! Impressive.
Triple seven messages are clear…at first sight, performance is ‘one’ important target.
The overall construction of the knight is super neat.
I flew the Knight SM at 93 all up in some turbulent air and strong conditions in our Cedars range.
Launching the Knight in nil wind is smooth and super easy. In strong wind, a dab on the brakes when the knight is above the pilot’s head will be better to control it overhead.
In the air, the Knight overall movements in pitch and roll weather in moderate or strong air, are super smooth and very well coordinated! It feels exactly like a low B in dampening feel with this exquisite little spice, which let the pilot, feels every movement of the air smoothly and very accurately!
I didn’t feel at any time that ‘dull’ feel found usually on the low B gliders…Instead the Knight delivers a very comfortable feel no matter how rough conditions are, with this little touch of magic, that informs the pilot about what’s going on in the air in a super smooth way!
Now my favorite part.
The Knight can be steered by a small amount on the brakes. I can describe the authority on the brakes as moderate to short, linear, precise, direct, agile…And I LOVE it! For a low B the Knight has the ‘dream handling’ Thermalling with the Knight is a real pleasure…I could control the turning radius by little precise brake inputs. Tight turns or large turns without that ‘common dive’ usually found on the low B’s. The turning radius on the Knight is very efficient. Flat turns can be made to optimize the climb in weak thermals. The knight has much better agility and more brake authority than the Rook 2 for example.
Trying to stall the Knight is difficult with hands lower than the seat board and lots of pressure. It’s really difficult to reach the stalling point.
Efficiency in an important word in the paragliding world. Creating efficient gliders in their respective categories is the most difficult part. The Knight cuts through the air-mass without any pitch back, or even a pitch forward. It just cut through peacefully, efficiently, like any good B glider would do. I didn’t feel at any time that I was being pushed away or bumping into the air-mass. The Knight was delivering a smooth efficient ride through the air.
The knight climb rate is on par with the best B’s available today, even the higher rated ones!
The overall glide performance is right on top of the low B category, and could reach some higher rated B glider easily.
The Rook 2 has the edge in the top speed glide.
The difference between the Tequila 4 that I liked, and the Knight is the extra comfort and smoothness in flight the Knight delivers with very close authority on the brakes, without the dive in turns.
The speed bar is easy to use with moderate pressure. The knight SM has a long speed bar travel, and when the pulleys are overlapping, I could see a 12 km/h over trim taken at 2800 ASL.
At bar, +8 km/h over trim is usable in all conditions.
Big ears are stable and reopen by the pilot input. They are efficient in descent rate.
Induced asymmetric are easy to maintain and reopen quickly. Full induced frontal makes a ‘rosette’ but a little dab on the brakes and it opens as fast as lightning.

Conclusion: IMHO, Triple Seven has created a ‘master piece’ for the low B category. The impressive cocktail of climb, glide, handling, comfort, ease of use, authority on the brakes, efficiency, is very rare to be found on a low B glider on the market today.
Written words on papers remain sleeping words…But I'm sure that the experience in ‘test flying’ the Knight will wake you up!

Our excitement knows no bounds; we're officially announcing our latest and most eagerly awaited new model, the Queen 2. As usual, the first size to be certified and available is the MS, which is already homologated for a weight range going from 79 to 99kgs. The MS size is ready for ordering from today, with the first wings to be delivered in December, according to the ordering sequence. The ML size follows shortly thereafter.
We're sending a few pre-series wings to important reviewers like Ziad Bassil even before that, to add to the vibe and expand your sales toolbox a little from the word "go" - we're certain that this wing is going to impress, and we want everyone to know about it!

So what can we tell you about this new wing?

definitely the new performance benchmark in its class
true Valič handling due to intelligent design
honest C class glider
factory-fitted with a functional BC system
optimised internal reinforcement design for structural integrity and best strength-to-weight ratio
climbs like a demon in all conditions


We feel that this new wing is going to make a big impact on the market, and make the job of selling Triple Seven products very easy indeed - but we need your cooperation! So please let us all help each other by getting a lot of demo gliders out there ASAP - we promise that anyone demoing this wing will be a Triple Seven convert right away. We're sewing Queen 2's as fast as we can right now, but there will be some bottlenecks all the same. This means that we're shipping gliders out according to order dates, so if you want to surf this one with us you'd better get your orders in right away!

Nothing worthwhile happens overnight, and good things take their time - we've all heard the cliches, and rarely have they been apter than here. But the fact is that the Q-light, our new EN C lightweight thoroughbred, is now completely READY and dying to go out to you, to help your customers fulfill their wildest flying dreams! With all sizes certified, and production running at full throttle, they could be hanging beneath one in March if you get the order in right away...

If you, or your customers aren't completely sure what the Q-light is, or how it is built, head over to the Q-light web page (https://777gliders.com/gliders/queen2/) or, for even more in-depth information check out the virtual brochure we created (http://fliphtml5.com/mpnin/hxyt).

Oh and by the way; this is the wing which our team pilot Marko Hrgetić will be flying in the 2019 Red Bull X-Alps - we can't wait to watch him slayin' on that beast! If you've been part of the team for a bit you'll remember that he absolutely KILLED IT on a Queen 2 in the Monarca Open in Mexico one year ago, placing 4th in this prestigious comp in the company of the 2-liners, we're crossing our fingers that he'll be up to something similar this summer in the Alps!

We're very excited to finally announce the imminent release of the Gambit, our new top-of-the-stack CCC weapon Gambit!! We just received notice from Air Turqouise that the wing has passed both load and flight test according to the CCC rules. We will introduce sizes XS, S, M and L, announcing the exact weight ranges in the coming weeks.
We're starting a small-scale production of this incredible wing right away. We will have a very limited number of wings ready before the Worlds in Krushevo in August (Delivery mid-July). If you want to improve your chances in this event we encourage you to place your pre-order NOW, we'll be allocating wings based on pilot rankings to ensure that our new baby gets the best possible debut in life. Place your orders directly through web form, with pilot's data at http://www.777gliders.com/gambitpreorder

We'll be publishing the final price in the coming weeks.

Sepp Schwitzer iz paraalpin.info napisao je review od Triple seven Q-light laganog EN/LTF C krila. Ovo krilo će naš Marko Hrgetić - Hrgator letiti na predstojećem Red bull X-Alps natjecanju. Osvrt je napisan na njemačkom jeziku, a Triplesevenovci su ga google translatirali i dostavljam vam ga takvog na engleskom:

Rook 3 High EN/LTF B

As you all know, the development of this one has been a very long and delicate one. We exploited all the options with numerous prototypes in all the possible flying conditions. That being, to provide the market with a wing, that will feel great and up to the point of a high B class pilot. We learned a lot with the Queen 2 new profile, which proved to be a winner visiting just about any podium in the sport class over the last two years period. Now, we were able to incorporate this extensive knowledge into a new Rook 3 design, which is promising to the pilot a great overall feel and performance package.

New look!
The Rook 3 is the first of the wings that is following the great feedback of the Gambit visual design. But, the overall look was not decided based on positive commentary solely: the look made to support the Triple Seven philosophy, performance, and safety optimization above all. The new design incorporates the smallest number of seams possible. Just about any stitch in the canopy is there for the sole shaping purpose. Only the coloring of the panels creates this beautiful racing look.

When we deducted the number of the seams, we ended up with canopy with a significantly reduced percentage of pressure leakage. We created a canopy, pressurized to the highest point possible at any given flying regime.

Made to last!
We will use the same canopy material as we did with the previous version, as it proved as the best choice for the longevity of the wing. The line material optimization used with the Rook 3 is as with the Queen 2. The option with these mesh of materials is bound for the wing to last long within the right trim area for a more extended period. The right combination of the new PPSLS and kevlar lines in the right spots proved that the wing needs trimming after a more extended period than without this combination. Oh, and yes, the kevlar lines will come in red.

Packing small!
We put' a lot of effort this time into creating a canopy that translates the forces in the canopy so evenly, that a lesser number of plastics is needed. We tried a lot of different options in numerous prototypes and ended up with the wing that will be foldable into a tiny package without hurting its internal construction.

Four sizes
Addressing the market situation, we will be following the top weight ranges jointly or to the point of the Knight model. The MS weight range is certified form 80 to 95 kg.
The 15 kg range was incorporated since we believe that any wing flown in the bottom 5 of the 20 kg range does not provide the desired feel even tho it makes its way through the certification process.

The BC system!
Responding to the market guidelines, we incorporated the BC system also in the Rook 3 design. XC pilots are going to love this new option as it will make those ridge runs and valley crossing a pure joy.

LMO https://777gliders.com/technology/lmo/
BPI https://777gliders.com/technology/bpi/
OCV https://777gliders.com/technology/ocv/
STE https://777gliders.com/technology/ste/
VDO https://777gliders.com/technology/vdo/

The Rook 3 is stepping into huge shoes of its predecessor, but we are confident, he will fill them appropriately, deserving the name it holds in the market.

The Rook 3 MS is already available for orders, with the rest of the sizes following.
The estimated time of delivery of the first wings is 1.5 months. First Come, First Served, of course.

Needing any additional info, we are here to help you.

Triple Seven (Aljaz,Urban) Interview 30/3/2020
Hello, Aljaz, Urban !
I hope you are all doing well with your family. The world is facing a serious pandemic and I just wanted to give some hope and information to the pilots that are quarantined at home.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

1- I’m totally convinced that 777 will never release a product if both brothers are not completely satisfied with it! And that leads to superb flying machines. Knight, Rook, Queen, Q-light, King…Every glider has IMHO, a secret ingredient called (efficiency)
What can you say about the Rook 3 in that matter? What would the pilot expect from the new high B glider? concerning performance, climb, speed perhaps?…

777: Hi Ziad, and thank you for having us. Indeed, Rook 3 got its final shape in the long run of testing over the past three years. We always want to offer our pilots a wing that will stand for at least three years in the future. Therefore we need to take more time to do things right. The Rook 2 was now on the market for four years being competitive through the whole period of its existence, but, now it is time for a new one. The performance growth curve was exponential with Rook 1 and Rook 2. Still, soon, the overall leaps in performance in the high B class stalled a little bit on the market, especially if you want to offer the wing that still feels right for the high-B class pilots and isn't pushed into the B from somewhere else.
With Rook 3, we phased our design more on the side of the overall package where performance is not revolutionized, but overall handling with great climbing was taken into the count even further this time. We took the experiences from other models with the line layout, the BC system, the materials, and optimized those into the Rook 3. The PPSL, Aramid mesh of the lines, proved with really extended trim longevity in Queen 2. Therefore it was obvious we will use this mixture also in Rook 3. We redesigned the BC system to a double gearing system, which makes the pull easier. The system is made additional to the existing riser, which is essential from the safety side as you are still flying on the proper risers, and you don't have the lines attached to the system itself.

2- Ziad: Any performance comparison with the Rook 2?
777: Of course, we did quite a few rides next to one another. As mentioned earlier, we're not doubling or revolutionizing the performance over it, but there is a slight edge in the float-ability of the Rook 3.

3- Ziad: Any light Rook 3 following?
777: indeed, since we were able to come up with the wing with minimal count and length of plastics in the canopy (these are only in the leading edge and short), we believe we will be able to offer quite a light wing soon, which will be based on the Rook 3.

4- Ziad: We saw a few pics of the King2 on the web. Is it a 3 liner? Since the 7 aspect ratio King S had that feedback through the brakes with good precision and nice feel in thermals, what can you say about the feel on the King 2? I know it’s still a prototype, but what can you tell more about the King 2?

777: With King 2, we hope we are in the last stages of development. The overall package seems to be there, and it will have it in the three-line concept, of course. The wing itself is a completely new wing, the same is only AR 7 compare to the first version. There are 14+more cells, a new profile is more optimized for high-speed stability, S-shaped plastic suspension support in the cell walls is present here as well. There is a new straight plastic material PA 11 for profile support and a new thinner Dyneema dsk99 lines like on the Gambit.


5- Ziad: What can we expect from the King 2? Did the team at least compare it with the latest creations?

777: We're fortunate to have a good group of great pilots here in the area who are flying all kinds of wings—also the latest D class two liners. Let's say that we feel that we have a good wing in hands.

6- Ziad: Any 2 liner with D certification in the near future?
777: Of course. When? We don't know just yet, maybe 2021... :)

7- Ziad: When pilots will expect the Bishop? And what did 777 focused on in the development stages?
777: The King 2 project left the Bishop wing on the side a little bit. The focus with the Bishop is, of course, ease of use with longevity for the true commercial use of the wing. The tandem market is interesting; some are doing their top to bottom flights, searching for a bulletproof wing, then we have alpine tandem pilots who seek better handling with added performance. We're trying to add all of this into one good mixture for both worlds.

8- Ziad: Is Triple Seven considering to release harnesses in the future?
777: With the team, we have here, we're all the time fully occupied with the development of the wings. Adding this part to the business would obstruct the quality of the wings design. We don't want that.

9- Ziad: Anything you would like to add concerning new releases?
777: Indeed, the whole world is facing hard times at the moment. We were lucky enough to have the latest prototypes here in the house, so we can test and finish them so when we are back on the hill, we can all enjoy the new wings and freedom again. We wish all the pilots to stay healthy in these times.


Thank you very much for your answers!
Ziad
