A Legacy of Innovation
The Sport series of gliders from Wills Wing has always defined what a sport class, recreational high-performance glider should be. The Sport 3 brings that heritage to its highest level.
The most significant aerodynamic revisions to the Sport 3 are a redesigned sail and stability system that together provide for a tighter-flatter sail and allow for lower sprog settings. This lower twist sail both significantly improves high speed performance and reduces pitch pressures at high speed. These changes also contribute to improved handling across the speed range and range of VG adjustment. The Sport 3 can also be configured with carbon fiber raked tips that increase the effective aspect ratio, reducing induced drag to further enhance low speed performance.

Airframe and Hardware
The Sport 3 airframe introduces new tuning options to more effectively optimize the control and handling characteristics for a wider range of sail configurations and pilot preferences. Now it’s easier than ever to tighten an older sail or loosen a crisp new wing. The Variable Geometry System has also been redesigned to be more effective and easier to pull. A Kickstand Stinger is also included to make setup and breakdown even easier.
Development Goals and Constraints:
Lightest Weight Glider in its Class
Easiest to Fly and Land Glider in its Class
Industry’s Highest Quality Materials and Construction Standards
Most Affordable Glider in its Class
We were also focused on improving the fit and finish of the smallest details, like adding folded hems to zipper openings and optimizing every single patch for both appearance and effectiveness. Combined with the remarkable performance gains and the extensive service and support that you’ve come to expect from Wills Wing, the Sport 3 will exceed your expectations for sport-class soaring enjoyment.
