Following many years of dissatisfaction with the working agreement, an inability to collect royalties owed but not paid, and failed negotiations – in 2016 NZ Aerosports cancelled CIMSA’s licence to make, sell, or market Icarus canopies. NZ Aerosports is now the only place manufacturing true Icarus canopies. Of course, breakups often get messy, and CIMSA refused to drop the Icarus name, and released a new range of canopies with names that sound an awfully lot like Safire and Crossfire (we’re sure it’s unintentional). Cheeky bastards. Oh well!
