For all gliders purchased after July 1, 2007, Skywalk offers its customers the skywalk 2 + 2 Guarantee – an additional warranty that goes beyond the minimum required by law.
These are the designs of our basic models.
Before we put pencil to paper, we spent a lot of time talking to the CHILI community. We asked thermal flyers, XC specialists, expert pilots, and our importers and dealers what they would like to see in the CHILI4. Their feedback became our mission:
The CHILI4 gives its pilots more precise feedback and can be steered more intuitively throughout the whole spectrum of its brake line travel than its predecessor, the CHILI3. Control line movement lies in ergonomically perfect space and the brake lines kick in promptly after a carefully selected delay. Brake travel and pressure are optimized to meet the requirements of thermal and XC pilots who love to spend hours exploring their favorite line. That’s why effective brake travel is a little shorter and the brake pressure a little higher than with the glider’s successful predecessor. The result is direct, precise and effortless handling.
A new canopy concept with a slightly higher cell count, decent shark nose and more attention to details in the cell construction and sail tension ensure constant internal pressure along the entire angle of attack area. The result is a glider that flies like on rails, even in turbulence conditions. We improved not only the glider’s performance along the entire polar curve – from off-bar cruising mode to near comp wing highspeed gliding – but also its stability in hands-off flying. The CHILI4 converts every updraft into altitude gain without rearing up in turbulence. This makes it even easier to core thermals than with its predecessor, making the CH4 the new the “climbing king” of the EN-B class.
To sum it up: We think CHILI pilots will love the “new one”. And the rest of the crowd will follow suit after the first test flight.
The CHILI impresses with extraordinary XC characteristics.
Very good glide performance and high end speed go hand in hand with high stability and a safe feeling for pilots. For those who want to access the full potential of the CHILI, and those who have the experience, we recommend the use of an aerodynamic harness. Only then can the extraordinary glide of the CHILI be fully utilized.
The climb performance of the CHILI is outstanding and can be precisely controlled.
The reactions of the CHILI are very manageable. Canopy feedback is good and direct.
Our tried and true JET FLAPS are partly responsible, along with the relatively low aspect ratio. The position of the A-level was not moved back and the CHILI was certified without folding lines, like all of the skywalk gliders!
For pilots with very low flight hours or lower performance demands, we recommend the TEQUILA, a low-level B wing.
