Description

The NZ Aerosports Icarus Student Canopy.


The Icarus Student is a mistake-friendly, fun and forgiving wing, which allows for more consistent flying in all situations. And she’s built tough to withstand rough handling!


Safety is more than just reducing injuries – it’s also about prevention. NZ Aerosports works under the methodology that easy = safe and safe = easy. ZP construction, Vectran 750 lines, contrasting brake lines and alternating color packing tabs optimize the new Icarus Student for durability and ease of use. Your students will be safer, for longer.


NZA gave her a 9-cell planform and modern shaping to make her responsive and increase predictability and – voila! – a student canopy that students will actually enjoy flying. This results in more confidence throughout the learning curve and unlocks faster progression.


Her flare is powerful and super forgiving to let new skydivers spend more time concentrating on progressing and less time with their faces embedded in the dirt.


ZP Construction:


The Icarus Student canopy is made entirely of ZP. This means she flies better than her F111 counterparts. ZP is also a lot tougher and will last longer. She’s built to deal with all the rough handling, rough packing, and dragging across the ground your students can give her!


ZP makes it a tiny bit harder for students to push the air out, but we all know they can handle it. Not one ounce of longevity was sacrificed, so your Cost Per Jump on the canopy stays low. Have your students flying safer, for longer.


Standout Colour Scheme:


NZA didn’t design the Icarus Student colour scheme just for the newfound love of the colour pink (though that might have come into it somewhere). There are tangible benefits for your students hidden away in those conspicuous colours. And don’t worry; you can replace the pink with any colour of your choosing!


When your students are flying around at 4000ft the split colour lower surface makes it easy for whoever is counting canopies to see which ones they are. And it’s dead simple for instructors to check what way they’re flying to give them radio commands.


Plus when your students are packing the 50/50 colour scheme makes it glaringly obvious where the centre of the canopy is and where to start flaking – from the centre black cell to the outer black cell.


Alternating Line tabs:


NZA added alternating grey and white line tabs on the lower surface so your students can easily separate out the different line groups.


Contrasting Brake Lines:


And just to make packing that little bit simpler for new skydivers, NZA made the brake lines on the Icarus Student black, to stand out against the other white lines. When your students are doing their line continuity checks this helps show them where the brake lines might be tangled or wrapped around other lines.


The brake line below the brake setting is still white, so when they start running their hands up they can see immediately if the brakes aren’t set.


These features combine to give new skydivers confidence to enjoy their first flights at your drop zone!
