I fly Swing because

The quality is second to none. I have had the chance to fly many different gliders. The first time I flew my Mirage 11.5 I was stunned by the range! Honestly with trimmers in full my rate of descent made my ears pop and the opposite was a glide so smooth you could here your heart beat. Sickest glider ever!

I like

Flying more then anything Almost.

I dislike

I'll try anything once…
