The structure of the wing is made of Al-Alloy, with three main spars through the entire length of the wing. Aluminum tube struts are placed in a diagonal pattern in between the spars. Ultralight ribs provide the final airfoil profile. The skin is made of synthetic fabric designed for aviation, making the wings light and durable. The main spar was specially design for this aircraft, with an internal webbing that reinforces it structure, this allows to reduce the diameter of the spar and consecuently the total weight of the wing. The leading edge is Al-Alloy reinforced, and the wing insert & tip are made of composite material.
Wings are attached to the fuselage at two points; in the upper part through the rear spar hinge, and at the lower part by a hinge connected to the wing struts. The system allows the wing to tilt along the fuselage. This folding wing design is very practical and significantly reduces the cost per hour of flight.
