Lovely glider - respectable performance - easy handling easy landing.
Good 2nd glider for those looking for more perfomance - or more experienced pilots looking for a 'Fun' wing.
Very light glider - great for carry ups.
Service from Avian has always been good.
Started flying this wing at 20 hours - am still flying it at 100 - and not looking to change!

Had one from 40-400 hrs. Light to carry. Mine had tendency to drop a wing on landing. After consultation with other pilots, believe that some land well, others don't. On light wind landings, my glider felt to resist the flare, followed by a tip stall, with the stalled wing catching. Apparently 'de-tuning' the tips helps, as does 'landing' 2m above the ground (out of ground effect?). Otherwise, very nice glider.

Flew Amour139 for about 20 hours after 25hrs on Target16. After a Target it's a good step up in performance, especially in speed.

Handling is a little stiff, heard rather heavy pilots reporting it too. However with a bit of push out while weightshifting you can turn it reasonably quick or keep that wing down. Never had a problem. Amour159 reportedly handles easier.

Landing - didn't notice much resistance to flare, but heard of that on 159 size. Quite easy on 139, flare requires less effort than with Target.

Weight - really light glider, perhaps 24 or 25kg. Definitely lighter than Target, and generally easier to groundhandle and takeoff.

Rather short control frame, good for short pilots.

Few comments about Amour 12.5m2:
- very vell handling on launch
- perfect on landing - wing flaring well without any negative comments
- generally very light wing (about 25 (!) kg - all construction is definitale aimed to satisfy small pilots
- one negative moments was faced during the my first few hours of flight - glider a bit stiff in turn (especially if turn with bank angle more than 45 degrees). When glider was tested in circle turn - was marked that circle radius is decreasing and get glider out of spiral/circle is significally stiff.
- glider has a very good perfomance as a glider for intermidiate pilots
