The Volirium P1 is a smart vario, combining the most sensitive pressure sensor on the market with a state-of-the-art flight computer in a compact, purpose-built housing. Its software is newly designed and developed, focusing on a user-friendly and manual-free operation. Glove-friendly touch screen further increases its ease-of-use. The P1 is perfectly suited for pilots ready to set new personal bests or take the next step in their competition flying.
