One Man Rigging System
The IMI-One Man Rigging System was succesfully tested at the beginning of 2008. Several hundreds of units were delivered to the customers from whole world and for many different types of gliders since that time. It is highly rated because of its simple and light design, simple use and also small transport dimensions. We offer several combinations to be able to equip different kinds of glider types. Combination of four different wing holders and three bodies can be used, so the device is useful for almost all glider types, including some of the microlight and historical gliders.
Wing holder: Glass reinforced plastics with red gelcoat, covered with 10mm black adhesive Neoprene foam. 4 main bolt locations for different adjumsment of center of gravity position. Clever universal shape both for thick and thin airfoils or not universal flat profile shape for the most modern types of gliders. Removable securing arm adjustable in two axis with spring-knobs.

For those pilots, who want to have fully universal One man rigging system for club use or sharing with friends, the older universal wing holders are also on stock and compatible with above named gliders, only with aesthetic limitations (gap between wing and holder etc.).

Wing chord lenght 68-86cm (82-105cm), relative thickness 12-19%, useful for gliders from Libelle up to ASW-22 or common sport twoseaters (Janus, DuoDiscus, DG-1000). Use on a grass is no problem.
The universal one man rigging system (OMRS) works well on all 15/18 meter gliders. It accomodates older airfoils where the modern 15/18 m OMRS will not. The OMRS for modern 15/18 m gliders has a flatter holder only working with modern airfoils.
As with any OMRS never use alone in windy or gusty conditions.
