square feet of Raven I reserve? Can't Post

how do I find out what the square footage of my raven I reserve is? I have looked on the label on the tail of the canopy, all it says is model, serial #, and date of manufacture. on the side of the canopy it only says raven. to me it looks like its about 170 or better. the date of manufacture is sept 95. can anyone help?

Precision claims that Raven Is have 181 square feet.

PIA measures it as about 176 square feet.

Performance Designs (new Aerodyne, Cobalt, Icarus, etc.) uses a third measuring method, so Raven I is something like 165 using PD's method.

181 is the top skin measurement that precision uses. The bottom skin measurement would be smaller.
