Whatever you thought you knew about canopies, hit reset. Petra signals a first for canopy piloting: the hyper performance wing.

The JYRO Petra is the arrival of a game-changing adjustment in the way we think about flying parachutes. With a high roll rate, a long recovery arc and high maximal glide ratio, Petra delivers unrivalled power in the turn, plane out and flare. Combined with a highly elliptical planform and very high sweep, a record-breaking wing is born.

The JYRO (previously Icarus Canopies by NZ Aerosports) Petra will change you forever. She will make you do things, bad things, nasty distances that you thought were impossible. Her secret is a high end never-seen-before design made of polyurethane-coated nylon that adds efficiency and reduces drag from an already ridiculously fast and agile wing. Snap, turn, whipping around and rippin’ it on the pond in ways you never considered trying – Petra is like a bike pump for your balls.

She emerged from JYRO (previously NZ Aerosports’) Summer of Love R&D Project. With founder Paul ‘Jyro’ Martyn’s design expertise and Aerodynamics engineer Julien Peelman’s knowledge of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), computer modeling of airflow was used to analyze and predict the performance of a canopy’s shape.

Petra stood out from the previous prototypes. She was the result of over 30 years of JYRO (previously Icarus Canopies by NZ Aerosports) design experience and Julien’s fresh input.

She is completely different to any other canopy currently on the market, built from the ground up with entirely new panel shaping and trim. She’s the sexiest canopy around – and she can swoop-for-fucken-miles!
