The new Rio is the latest sports glider from Avian. The Rio was
designed as a glider to appeal to all pilots; it is a popular choice for
newly qualified pilots, recreational pilots and powered flight.
The Rio is light and easy to carry, simple to rig and very easy to take
off and land whilst having ample performance for good cross country
flights. The Rio has full BHPA certification.
