A word about North Wing: Quality and Service you can fly on...
North Wing has been manufacturing quality light aviation products for 15 years, and for 12 years we have employed 10 to 12 personnel. Some of our long term team members include: Linda brings her customer service and accounting expertise to the front line, and you will likely speak with her when you call. Cliff is our main wing assembler and has been with North Wing for 11 years, and he has built over 1000 wings. Val is in charge of where the magic happens in the sail loft. We build our sails in-house and Val makes sure every detail of the sail comes out so the wing comes out flying with style. In the Trike Factory, David has brought his electrical and mechanical skills to North Wing. David's goal is consistently building a top-quality trike and he is always looking to improve quality in many areas, whenever new info is available. Dan, Dave's right hand man, uses his manufacturing insights to ensure building high quality parts. Kamron has been a member of the Hang Gliding Manufacturers Association and has certified many hang gliders. He brings this experience of flex wing design and flight testing to North Wing.
These and our other qualified associates will bring their experience in customer service and manufacturing to build you one of the best Light Sport and Ultralight Trikes, Trike Wings or Hang Gliders in the world.
North Wing started with 3 employees in a small side hanger space that was 24 feet wide by 80 feet long. North Wing founded a reputation of having the wings that handle much better then even the longer established European trike wings. At that time, we made only Wings; looking back, we were making one or two wings a week... what a difference compared to now, when do four to six wings a week. In 1998, we designed and built our first single place trike (the Maverick) featuring a strutted wing. North Wing has been making strutted wings long before our competitors.
At North Wing, our main design criteria is to offer you a choice of wings that deliver easy handling, making them fun to fly. On our quest for optimal safety, we feel our #1 goal when designing wings is precise control and handling even at low speeds. When conditions out there get a little rough, we hope you will agree handling is going to be your biggest concern. Each wing design must pass specific parameters such as coupled feel in handling between pitch and roll, and a nice gentle stall. These handling pressures must fall within our tough guidelines. We feel these unique qualifications will instill confidence even when flying in turbulent conditions. Countless hours of research in sail, frame, and airfoil design have given our wings one of the largest speed range in the industry. So when you are on your way back to the airstrip and hit that dreaded head wind, you will be relieved to have chosen a North Wing. When you do choose a North Wing, you'll be happy to know you will never have to be a test pilot.
We test fly and tune every wing that leaves this factory.
