The name says it all...
A canopy designed by pilots for pilots.
Ask anyone who has
jumped a Pilot and they will tell you the openings are the
best you can get, it is fun to fly and easy to land. Since
its introduction the Pilot has charmed beginners and
experienced jumpers alike. Whether your cup of tea is a
conventional approach or a little more playful, the Pilot
will surprise you with its stable flight, responsive turns
and comfortable flare. This canopy can really do it all.
With a lighter wing loading
the Pilot is the ideal choice for those who downsize after
initial training and buy their first canopy. Increase the
wing loading and the Pilot becomes the favorite companion of
the more experienced skydiver who enjoys the higher
performance and faster turns it can produce. Canopy piloting
schools recommend the Pilot for their training courses,
because it is reliable and versatile at the same time.
Whether you deploy following
RW or a wing suit flight, with a camera mounted on your
helmet or a weight belt around the waist, the Pilot will put
you in the saddle in the most comfortable and reliable way.
Dare we say that its name has become synonymous for good
opening? Yes, but that is not the entire story, for the
Pilot has so much more to offer!
The Pilot is a 9-cell ram-air
canopy with top and bottom skins built from zero-porosity
fabric for best performance and longevity. The plan form
factor of 6.6 and the relatively short lines make it quite
responsive to turn input, without becoming radical.
The new standard in versatility.
