The Icarus Student has a 9-cell planform and modern shaping that make her responsive and increases 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.
The Icarus Student 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 students are flying to give them radio commands.
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.
They’re slow, soft and predictable. It’s big and square and it should be there…
Completely confidence building – you can expect the canopy to react slowly and predictably to each input your student makes.
Easy to master for the novice skydiver, with lots of range.
This canopy has a very low stall point, which is perfect for the beginner. It’s forgiving and easy to recover from.
Although aimed at the very beginner, this canopy has a lot to offer when progressing. Downsizing will feel easy and confidence inspiring. The Icarus Student will help your students find the flare point. Sharing a lot of similarities with the Safire 3, this wing is the perfect transition for your students onto their own canopy.
The Icarus Student has been designed to factor in the mistakes people make when learning. By giving you really big powerful brakes, your students will be able to slow down their descent at a comfortable pace, right to the tippy-toe landing. They’ll begin to find their confidence with it’s incredible flare…even when they don’t time it just right.
