This ADVANCE PI BI Light Tandem  – Dynamic flying fun for One or Two!

PI BI - What’s special

The new PI BI light tandem – one size, 37 m2 weighs only 4.8 kg and has a takeoff weight range from 100 to 180 kg. It is therefore perfectly suited to Hike and Fly with family and friends. The PI BI combines PI philosophy with the popular tandem flying qualities of the successful BIBETA 6. And that without compromises, ifs or buts.

It’s not just the weight and packed volume – the handling and agility of this light tandem reminds you of a solo glider. The PI BI has three risers and trimmers like the BIBETA 6, and is fitted with robust Edelrid Aramid lines. PI BI – dynamic flying fun for two.
