Rethink the 7-cell canopy, introducing the Pilot7.
When you have a famous name, there is an expectation to live up to it. This has certainly influenced our design of the Pilot7. The Pilot 9-cell canopy has built a solid reputation for great openings, flat glide and a powerful flare. The new Pilot7 needed to be pretty special to be worthy of the name Pilot.
The Pilot7 is probably the best wingsuit canopy made. It provides superbly consistent openings, which inspires confidence in everyone, from a beginning wingsuit flyer to a world champion (and several of both are happy Pilot7 flyers).
In flight, you will find the Pilot7 an agile and fun canopy. It is predictable enough that it encourages you to wring it out and play. It has a flat glide and a powerful flare, likely more so than any 7-cell you've experienced.
We make the canopy in standard ZP, in our honeycomb low pack volume ZPX, and in a new alchemy of materials we call UltraLPV. This builds the top skin and stabilisers from ZPX, and the ribs and bottom skin from FX-11 (the low pack volume material used in the SmartLPV). We use the ZLX lines to create an amazingly low pack volume canopy.
While we know wingsuit flyers love a great opening 7-cell available with unprecedentedly low pack volume, we also expect that there will be a demand from a broader spectrum of the skydiving community. Students, younger jumpers, and older jumpers will all benefit from the forgiving openings, low pack volumes and great handling characteristics of the Pilot7.
ZPX NYLON (OPTIONAL)
- An Aerodyne exclusive honeycomb structured fabric that is thinner and lighter, yet stronger than the regular ZP fabric we all know. This creates two great features: a 15 to 20% smaller pack volume (in comparison to a same sized ZP canopy) and a much easier pack job on even a brand new canopy.
ULTRA LPV BUILD
- A hybrid fabric build using Aerodyne exclusive materials. Constructed with a top skin and outer ribs of ZPX and bottom skin and inner ribs of FX11.
COLOURED PACKING TABS
- Frustration free packing with coloured packing tabs that allow for a speedy review of line groups during a pro-pack.
