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 came out with a bang in 2011, winning world records, international titles, and turning swooping stars into super stars almost overnight.
At her debut event PD Big Boys Pants in 2011, Petra smashed the World Distance Record with a 222.45m distance run flown by Nick Batsch. In the years since she has wonthe Nationals in France, Australia, Italy, USA, and the European Champs. She set many official records in Distance including the French, Australian, European and World Records.
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.
