This 9-cell canopy from Aerodyne is made of zero-p fabric and is available with 725 Spectra or 700 HMA line. The Pilot is known for its predictable on-heading openings, stable flight, responsive turns and strong flare.

With a lighter wing loading the Pilot is the ideal choice for a first canopy. Increase the wing loading and the Pilot becomes the favorite companion of the more experienced skydiver who enjoys the higher performance and faster turns it can produce. Canopy piloting schools recommend the Pilot for their training courses, because of it's flight characteristics.

Whether you deploy following RW or a wing suit flight, with a camera mounted on your helmet or a weight belt around the waist, the Pilot will put you in the saddle in the most comfortable and reliable way. The Pilot is a 9-cell ram-air canopy with top and bottom skins built from zero-porosity fabric for best performance and longevity. The relatively short lines make it quite responsive to turn input, without becoming radical.

Standard with each Pilot are soft links, new “lightweight” stainless steel grommets and color-coded line attachments for easier PRO packing.

Also available on the Pilot is the Aerodyne-exclusive zero porosity canopy fabric called ZPX. This honeycomb structured fabric 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 (It feels like you are packing a 500-jump ZP canopy).

Aerodyne main canopies have the option of zpX fabric. This extra option is $200.

It's very true what they say.... Review by Jason

This canopy can be as docile as you want it to be. Land it in straight and level flight and it'll be as predictable as a student canopy like the Aerodyne Solo but give it some gas on final and it'll surprise you with how much you can get out of it. Long-ish surfs are a bit of a trick to master but that's probably true for any canopy. The good thing is this canopy recovers quick and very, very predictably. (Posted on 11/1/2013)
