The T3 is a breakthrough in handling and performance for the high performance hang gliding market. The results from the first three competitions to feature T3s demonstrate that it’s the real deal.
First, in the 2019 Brazilian Nationals back in March, Wills Wing team pilots Filippo Oppici and Alvaro Figueiredo Sandoli (Nene Rotor) flying the new T3 144 took first and third overall respectively.

Next up, the “Florida Comps” – 2019 US National Series – two weeks of competition hosted by Paradise Airsports at Wilotree Park (formerly Quest.) During the first week, T3s would see three of four day wins with Zac Majors, Suan Selenati and Rodolfo Gotes each taking a win. Although the T3 lost the top spot overall to the ever consistent Jonny Durand, they still ended up taking 2nd through 5th and 7 of the top 10 spots!

Week two saw better weather, with 6 of 7 days flyable. Zac Majors would take the only two day wins for the T3 here but the top 3 overall for the week were all T3’s. Alvaro Figueiredo Sandoli (Nene Rotor), Pedro L. Garcia and Zac Majors, first through third respectively. The only other T3 in the top 10 overall for week 2 was Japanese Pilot Akira Nagusa (Nagu) in 8th place. This was Nagu’s first time flying in Florida. Great job Nagu!
