We are glad to introduce our new EN-B low-level glider, the Ion 2. From a technical perspective, the wing is the "little brother" of our Mentor 2. The Ion 2s strengths are similar: Easily usable performance with a high level of safety and with a nice handling behaviour.
The Mentor 2 once and for all showed the performance potential within the High-Level EN-B class. We developed the Ion 2 to reach the same in the Low-Level EN-B class!
Compared to Ion 1 the Ion 2 offers a completely new performance level. We could also improve the handling characteristics: The very stable wing offers a handling behaviour, which has nothing in common with a sluggish "low-level" flying feeling.

All flight tests (from XXS to L) have been passed, as well as the load tests. The official certification will be available in the following days.
