Introducing Skylark Canopies: Magellan and Commodore
The Skylark® Company has entered the market of skydiving equipment in 2000. Since then the company has gained high reputation and its products are well known in CIS and European Countries.
Skylark® offers wide range of modern, innovative skydiving equipment. All products of the company are of own development. Young professional team consists of highly qualified personnel with aeronautical background. The company uses scientific approach to the design, manufacturing and testing of its equipment and has created many innovations, which have proven to be very
effective. Products of Skylark® are made exceptionally with the use of the high quality materials from the leading world manufacturers.
SKYLARK® has developed its own methodology of design, production and testing of the modern ram-air canopies. We recommend two highly efficient main canopies for different purposes:
MAGELLAN – a 9-cell popular medium-class canopy
Due to the technological innovations applied in its design,
Magellan is consistently stable and predictable!
- comfortable, consistent openings
- soft and easy to master steering
- good gliding performance
- easy on front risers
- stable and easy to perform flare
- good swoop performance
All of the above make Magellan your reliable fun partner in day-to-day skydiving activities.
Loaded up to 1.2 lb/sq.ft. Magellan offers smooth steering and low descent rate, which makes it easy to handle also for the beginners.
Recommended wing loading range is 0.95 – 1.85 lb/sq.ft. Wing loading for the best flight performance lies in the range of 1.2 – 1.6 lb/sq.ft.
Magellan is made of ZP fabric in following sizes: 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170 and 190 sq.ft. The canopy is equipped with Vectran lines, collapsible slider with stainless grommets and comes with the set of soft links.
COMMODORE – the youngest addition to the family – the student/intermediate canopy.
Teaching the art of canopy flying implies special requirements to the equipment in use: precise and comfortable deployment, high stability under ultra low load, flat glide path with sufficient horizontal speed, easy flare and landing. Commodore meets all these requirements. Upper skin and ribs of the Commodore are made of ZP material, other parts are made of F-111. This combination significantly extends service life of the canopy while does not hurt the comfortable packing. The unique feature of Commodore is the use of divided across panels on the bottom skin. This enables the use of highly contrast color patterns, that lets distinctively spot student canopy even in the crowded sky.
Safe wing loading range of Commodore lies between 0.6 and 1.25 lb/sq.ft.
Recommended loading for the students is 0.65 – 0.90 lb/sq.ft.
The canopy is available in following sizes: 190, 210, 230, 250, 270 and 290.
