 BRONTES
BRONTES combines the very safe behaviour of an intermediate wing in all DHV manoeuvres, with the fine handling and outstanding performance of a modern super-class glider.
The handing and stability of BRONTES are good not only for record breakers, but also for those who simply want to build their skills on an exceptional wing with local pleasure flying.

 The Brontës and Religion
This is the first full-length study of religion in the fiction of the Brontës.
The analyses of the novels clarify the constant interplay of human and Divine love in the development of the novels.
While demonstrating that the Brontës' fiction usually reflects the basic tenets of Evangelical Anglicanism, the book emphasises the characteristic spiritual freedom and audacity of the Brontës.

 BRONTES-GGIII
“From the annuals, Brontë learned not only to imitatebut to parody the Gothic form: her early writings show that the Gothic allowed her to indulge in the exotic, the licentious, and mysterious while at the same time assuming that anti-Gothic stance that is so characteristic in her novels.”
Brontë makes the spectral nun stand for a desire that has become disembodied and endlessly deferred.

 Test Brontes - Sky / ojovolador   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
One particular detail of the Brontes is the 4 rings placed at the wingtips, which make part of a simple and efficient brake system, in which the tips of the glider bow at the first brake input, thus offering a fairly flat turn with only 20 cms.
Launching is very easy, the glider's response is smooth and regular to the action of the pilot on the risers, and you hardly need to hold it when it comes over your head.
The Brontes is an easy glider, which also reveals itself as performant.

 Flight Culture - Vol Libre revues the Brontes
The Brontes is a gem in the intermediate category, manageable by even the slightly experienced pilot who will master it very quickly.
According to Sky, the Brontes is within the limits of the AFNOR standard category.
In a comparison by Vol Libre, The Brontes is without doubt a good choice compared to the Astral 3, Hornet, Sigma 5 etc, for a pilot looking for easy flying combined with incredible performance.

 "We Are Three Sisters" Self and Family in the Writing of the Brontës Drew Lamonica
While biographers have widely acknowledged the importance of family relationships to Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë and to their writing processes, literary critics have yet to give extensive consideration to the family as a subject of the writing itself.
These chapters also introduce the Brontës' early collaborative writings, showing that the sisters' shared interest in the family's formative role arose from their own experience as a family of authors.
Of the numerous studies on the Brontës, comparatively few consider all seven novels, and no previous study has undertaken to examine the Brontës' writing in the context of mid-Victorian ideas regarding the family—its relationships, roles, and responsibilities.

The BRONTES is equipped with “split” A-risers to facilitate the “big-ears” wing reduction and descent manoeuvre.
The BRONTES is designed to be a safe glider, but all gliders in the intermediate class may require careful control inputs to properly recover from some flight incidents.

 The Brontes by Peter Davies | Greenwich Exchange
Thus, the stage was set, from the very inauguration of Brontë studies, for an interest (frequently mounting to obsession) in the characters of individual members of the Brontë family which has ever since contended with - and often triumphed over - the desire calmly to estimate their literary merits.
Barker set out to bury, once and for all, the Brontë myth by seeking to demonstrate that much of what we would regard as bleak, austere, uncomfortable, disease ridden and, above all, death accompanied was normality for such times as those, and is therefore scarcely worthy of remark.
The impressive research work notwithstanding, we are left with a version of the Brontë story that is strangely lacking in imaginative sympathy with the passionate temper of that age.

 Brontes Dance Review
Using the Brontes' own words as a springboard, Velasco and Gunderson have conjured a spirit world in which song and dance give voice at once to fantasy and reality.
Charlotte Bronte surged to vivid life as the wonderful actress-singer Shana Wride and the swan-necked dancer Khristina Kravas paired marvellously to show the easy (but psychologically complex) slip between Bronte's real-life heartache over a married man and her searing evocation of Jane Eyre's thwarted love for Rochester.
And when Charlotte, who buried all three of her siblings, is left alone to face heartache and creative struggle, Velasco, Ame vanBenschoten (as a restrained, graceful Anne) and Andrea Feier (as a more extroverted Emily) appeared in the Lyceum Space's rafters, where they continued to dance in Charlotte's head and heart.

The only place that the "numbers" show the Brontes to be behind these wings is max speed, but those numbers are based on the tests in Vol Libre — and I’m not sure that they got full travel for them.
despite the fact that the brontes is the oldest wing from the test, its flying behavior remains obsolutely up-to-date.

 Sex and supposition thrive in biography of the Brontës
After his wife and two older daughters died, Patrick Brontë, the town vicar, asked his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Branwell, to watch over his four remaining children and to run the household at Haworth, a town abutting the moors.
Instead, she traces Brontë theories from their beginnings to the present, mainly as they affect Charlotte (1816-1855) and Emily (1818-1848).
Questions were raised as early as 1846 when the three daughters published a mysterious volume of poetry under the male-sounding pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell.

My first chance to fly the Brontes was at Ocotillo Wells on a WalkerJet Paramotor, where I did spiral dives (safety officer Eric DuFour was kind enough to tell me stop such foolish behavior), no-wind forward launches and just general preliminary flights.
All in all, the Brontes proved itself to be an easy glider to launch with PPG in no winds, pleasure to just boat around with or have fun on while paramotoring.
For the more ambitious PG pilots, the Brontes offers oodles of passive safety, while retaining a lot of fun factor while doing Acros.
