Flytec Speed is for you if you are looking for a robust and reliable vario with the benefit of GPS.

Key additional functionality enabled by the GPS (compared to the Alto Vario) includes: Speed over ground, wind direction and speed, current flying direction, user selectable data fields, current glide ratio, distance and direction to launch, distance and direction to the last thermal.

As with all of the Flytec range, the Speed is:

Simple – Created for the leisure pilot who needs a turn-it-on-and-fly device with essential functionality only.
Robust – Because it is based on the proven Flytec design with an incredibly solid housing.
Reliable – Because of the Naviter designed and simplified internal electronics.

It also has the signature – and much loved – Flytec quality vario and tone.
