ADVANTAGES OF SINGLE DRUM WINCH LAUNCHING:
Launch glider and cable end landed midfield under light tension (using drogue parachute). Waiting vehicle drives to meet end of the cable as it lands, then attaches and tows direct to the glider.
  • Simple system, only single drum main winch (and one set of cable equipment) required - No risk of cable crossover.
  • Cable can be towed direct to glider (not necessarily at the launch point) to reduce aircraft ground handling / downtime.
  • Cable reel in and retrieving distance reduced by up to 50%.
  • Only light car (ie small hatchback) required - will reduce purchase / maintenance / fuel costs etc.
  • Light vehicle will cause less airfield wear and can vary route for each retrieve.
  • Launch direction can be adjusted to favour headwind
  • Single drum launching with midfield retrieve operation launch rates are approximately 80% of twin drum launch rates
  • Winch is ready to use with high speed retrieve winch if faster launch rate required
