SkyAngle Parachutes

   SkyAngle Classic Series Parachutes feature an innovative, multicolored extended-panel design of 1.3 ounce silicone coated rip-stop nylon reinforced with a continuous, uninterrupted run of mil-spec flat tubular nylon suspension lines around the outside of the canopy. Engineered for rocketry enthusiasts and researchers by rocket enthusiasts, SkyAngle Parachutes sport a design asymmetry that enhances the natural tendency of the ‘chute to spin. This spinning characteristic is beneficial to the recovery process on many levels. Primarily, the spinning minimizes the damaging oscillation, flopping, and pulsation often seen in some parachutes. This control results in a much more stable recovery than normally possible with other brands. Also, spinning prevents canopy collapse and aids in tracking at altitude. The inclusion of our heavy-duty 1000 lb. nickel plated swivel assembly virtually ensures a tangle-free recovery!  Canopy, extended panel and suspension line colors may vary from pictures.

Classic II Series Parachutes feature 1.9 ounce silicone coated rip-stop nylon for the canopy and a heavier duty 1500 lb. swivel.
