(made in 1978)
The following description is taken from a Wasp advertisement of May 1978.
'Developed from Miles Handley's brilliant original concept isGryphon 111, a unique hybrid hang glider which embodies the best features of both flexwing and rigid wing types. The braced airframe has meant the elimination of cross booms together with their attendant drag, weight and rigging penalties. Gryphon 111 has superior performance in every respect. Speed range is unbelievable. Manoeuvrability is outrageous. A hot dog pilot's dream. For soaring pilots it can be flown relaxed and drifted into the flattest 360's ever. Remarkable for a wing that can be banked to 90 deg faster than anything around. All this together with strength, a L/D ratio better than 11:1 and sink rate of around 2.5 ft per second make it a perfect cross country machine's.
