DESIGN YOUR OWN
When it's time for your students to fly solo...
this is the canopy.
It is all about confidence and reliability. Whether you are a drop zone
owner or a first jump student, the last thing you need to be concerned
with is your equipment.
The Solo student canopy can give you that confidence. Strong where it
needs to be, forgiving when it has to be, the Solo provides all of the
characteristics needed for successful student training. The Solo is durable,
with extra reinforcement, while being easy to pack. Its opening flight and
landing characteristics have been tailored to allow you to teach your
students proper modern piloting techniques. This has become vitally
important in today’s world of high performance canopies. We have even
considered the difficult transition path from student to novice and beyond.
As the student becomes more experienced and is prepared to downsize,
the Solo’s design allows for a natural transition to our Pilot canopy. This
allows the novice canopy pilot an easy and straightforward transition from
student equipment to their own, without the need to “re-learn” the canopy’s
characteristics. This provides a much safer and more enjoyable transition,
with continued learning. We have even built in visual cues to allow for easier
PRO packing training. By utilizing color-coded line attachments, the student
learns proper packing techniques in much less time and with greater confidence.
