Whatever you thought you knew about canopies, hit reset. Petra signals a first for NZ Aerosports and canopy piloting: the hyper performance wing.
Petra is the arrival of a game-changing adjustment in the way we think about flying our parachutes. With a high roll rate, a long recovery arc and high maximal glide ratio, Petra delivers unrivalled power in the turn, plane out and flare. Combined with a highly elliptical planform and very high sweep, a record-breaking wing is born.
Petra will change you forever. She will make you do things, bad things, nasty distances that you thought were impossible. Her secret is a high end never-seen-before design made of polyurethane-coated nylon that adds efficiency and reduces drag from an already ridiculously fast and agile wing. Snap, turn, whipping around and rippin’ it on the pond in ways you never considered trying – Petra is like a bike pump for your balls.
Petra is a professional tool for pilots who fly for food. If you don't have a coach to ask if you're ready, then you're not ready. This wing is a custom, special order item with options not found anywhere else in the industry. Put your name on the list today and get one step closer to everything you need to put you on the medal table.
Who is Petra for?
Petra is a full sail competition specific swoop canopy. She isn’t designed for everyday jumping, or the everyday jumper, but for the experienced competitive canopy pilot who has thousands of jumps on small highly loaded crossbraced canopies.
To order a Petra you MUST have:
- 700+ jumps on a 2.2wl or above
- 250+ jumps in the last 12 months
- A reference from a respected coach/swooper or Petra/Peregrine pilot
- Have competed at least once in the last 12 months (or competed 3 or more times in Open in the last 3 years)
If you fall narrowly outside these minimums but have something else to take into consideration (i.e. high percentage of swoop specific coached jumps or lots of competition experience but not within the last year) let us know
Am I ready for Petra?
Do you have a good coach? Does your coach say you are ready? Do you meet the requirements above?
Will my order be accepted?
If you have lots of jumps on small highly loaded crossbraced canopies, are competing to a reasonable level and can supply some good references of your ability, we’d love to make you a Petra!
If we’re not sure, we’ll send you a few more questions, and if you’re not quite there yet, we’ll keep your contact details and check where you’re up to in about a year. We want everyone to fly the canopy they want to, but we also try to keep you safe
The price is including an RDS and spare lineset.
