Antares 23T

solo sustainer

This optimized competition version of the Antares 23 has a huge range of wing loading options from 34-58 kg / m² . There are twelve individually controlled, ballast tanks, that have a total capacity of over 353 liters. The aircraft's weight can be very finely controlled for all weather conditions used. The Antares 23T will lead the pack at high speeds as compared to all other competing spans.

 

Three-time European Champion Peter Harvey (GB) during the World Cup 2012 in Uvalde / Texas with the prototype of the Antares 23T  

(with the shorter fuselage of the Antares 20E) had three stage wins. The fastest day the 23E was flown 553 kilometers with an average speed of 161 km / h and was awarded the Robert Kronfeld Cup for fastest speed of the contest!
