When it’s time for your student 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 must be, the Solo provides all 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 piloting skills. 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.
Features & Options
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.
Colored Packing Tabs
Frustration free packing with colored packing tabs that allow for a speedy review of line groups during a pro-pack.
