The Basic Wing Loading Formula

At its most basic, the concept of wing loading comes down to a very simple formula, in which one calculates the ratio of jumper exit weight to canopy size. Here?s the formula:

W ? C?= wing loading, where ?W? is exit weight in lbs and ?C? is the canopy?s surface area in square feet

For example, if you have a total exit weight of 190 lbs and fly a 190-square-foot canopy, your calculated wing loading would be:
190 ? 190 = 1, or 1 lbs per square foot, for a wing loading that would be generally referred to as ?1 to 1?
If your exit weight remains the same but you downsize to a 170-square-foot canopy, the formula looks like this:
190 ? 170 = 1.1176470588235294, or 1.1 lbs per square foot
If you made the (extremely poor) decision to snap-downsize to a 120-square-foot canopy, the math looks like this:
190 ? 120 =?1.58333333333333, or 1.6 lbs per square foot
A bigger number means?more: more?down, more?fast.

Leia is not a canopy built to the standards of a mere workhorse, but to the impossibly high standards of a modern competition canopy.

With advanced panel shaping and the latest generation planform initiated with Petra, she is the most modern wing you can buy short of a full comp-specific sail fabric parachute. Her high ellipticity, optimized wing tips and signature Powerband nose make for a leading edge that simply slices through air.

From Leia?s sleek computer engineered 21-cell design to her sexy airfoil and Vectran 400 lines, she is not just the world?s ultimate ZP canopy. She is your ultimate everyday swoop wing. The result? She?s soft where you want her and strong where you need her. A canopy that can be jumped anytime hassle-free and can also kick ass over the pond like nothing you?ve ever seen. Made for highly skilled pilots to fly with everyday, she is not a toy ? she?s a weapon.

Which is why everyone who is anyone (or thinks they are) wants to get his or her hands on one.? True, that extra ten percent that separates the truly extraordinary from the merely good doesn?t come easy. Or cheap. But after one test flight we?re confident you?ll agree, she?s worth every penny.

The all-new Leia. Fall in love.

With advanced panel shaping and the latest generation planform initiated with Petra, Leia is the most modern wing you can buy short of a full comp-specific sail fabric parachute. Her high ellipticity, optimized wing tips and signature Powerband nose make for a leading edge that simply slices through air.

This new version of Leia only comes with Hybrid Construction – sail internals. We’ve also added mini-ribs.

You can also have any colour you want for the Powerband, rather than just black. Mini-ribs and patches come in the same colours as the Powerband.

3D DESIGN

We are now using Catia V5 to design canopies. This is one of the most advanced 3D CAD softwares available. It gives us more freedom to design the canopy down to the finest details and helps generate the most accurate panels possible. The result is a more accurate shaping, a smoother surface, and better aerodynamic efficiency.

CFD TESTED

The Leia shape has been tested using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) which gives us, among other things, a better understanding of her behaviour in turbulence and during recovery.

PLANFORM

Leia’s planform, characterized by a high ellipticity and a high sweep, is coming from research done during the Petra discovery – the ratio between tip chord and center chord is the same but span is a bit less. It was adapted a little bit to fit the 7-cell format better.

HYBRID COSTRUCTION

This more advanced version of the original ZP Leia with sail fabric internals has now become standard for all Leia’s. This configuration turbo-charges the wing and gives you an extra burst of speed and power. Note: Sail internals are exclusively available in white.

POWERBAND

We’ve added the split leading edge Powerband to all our new canopies since we pioneered it with Petra. It allows us to better control the aerodynamic shape in the nose area, which prevents parasitic drag. It also helps to delay the stall.

MINI-RIBS

Mini ribs are a clever way to reduce drag generated by the canopy trailing edge by making it sharper. The improvement is really noticeable for a limited cost in terms of packing volume.

NO STABILIZER

Like Petra, Leia has a specific end cell design with no end rib and no stabilizer. The last chamber is designed to replace them while limiting induced drag.

NEW CROSSPORT DESIGN

Crossports have been strategically placed in Leia to have the least influence on the upper surface shape. They have also been designed with an elliptical shape that optimizes their area while reducing the upper surface distortion.

REMOVABLE DEPLYMENT SYSTEM

Leia comes standard with a normal slider. You have the option to purchase an RDS.

CUSTOM SYSTEM

Parachutes aren’t a one size fits all. The Leia is available in any size you choose so that you can get the perfect wingloading for you at this stage in your canopy progression.
