The A-I-R Atos range are by far the most successful and popular rigid wing
hang gliders in the World. They bring a massive performance improvement
over flex wing hang gliders. There are now many models available, all designed
by Felix Ruhle.
All A-I-R gliders are now supplied with a V tail plane. This has been a break-
through in improved safety both in pitch damping and spin resistance.
Many pilots now consider it foolish to fly without a tail plane. Felix, Christoph
and the ATOS team have produced some truly amazing aircraft. Easy to rig,
easy to fly, the best performance and easy to land;
Now wonder these gliders are totally dominant in their class.

The Icaro Stratos is Icaro's version of the ATOS. The Stratos uses the
same airframe as the ATOS but it has a slighlty different sail cut with a
different position of the undersurface stripe. The most striking visual
difference, however, is the sharper wing tip. This give the Stratos a slightly
larger wing span than the ATOS. The Stratos, flown by Christian Chech has
won two world championships. It is available in S and L sizes.
