The presence of a cargo-pendulum suspended under the wing is an important feature of a parachute-wing, which is absent from other aircraft. Virtually the entire load carried by the dome is suspended at a considerable distance from the wing. This feature leads to the peculiar flight characteristics of the dome in turn. When you enter the dome into a turn, the pilot’s body continues to move in a straight line until the lines when the lines turn it to a new course. Continue reading

Wingsuite Flights

Does a wingsuit fly or only reduce the vertical speed due to aerodynamic drag? It really flies, as simply its area is not enough for such a reduction in vertical speed and smooth planning.

But only gravity allows flying to wingsuit. The vertical fall caused by gravity forces the wingsuit into a horizontal (as far as possible) flight. The same principles underlie the flight of gliders, hang gliders and wing-type parachutes. Continue reading
