Skipper offers: soft and consistent openings - easy and safe controlls - moderate descend and sufficient horizontal speed - high stability in turbulent air - good flare - low packing volume
Remarkable performance data were achieved due to use of the original in it's class technological solutions:
High, as for 7-cell, aspect ratio - Planform similar to that of 9-cell canopies - Special design of air intakes, that reduces deformation of the skin.
With wing loadings of 1.3 or below Skipper can be recommended to the beginners. At higher loadings it becomes notably more responsive on the toggles, but stays docile enough for a skydiver of average skills. Skipper gives consistently stable and comfortable openings, soughed by cameramen and wingsuit pilots.
Recommended wing loading range of Skipper is 1.1 – 1.7 lb/sq.ft. Wing loading for the best flight performance lies in the range of 1.3 – 1.5 lb/sq.ft.
