Description

Designer’s note

The PHI SONATA is the new baseline of our sport: the new reference. It redefines the safety, performance and fun level a modern paraglider is able to offer. The highest technical knowledge combined with 30 years experience in professional paraglider design made this wing possible.

During development the very experienced PHI test pilots team (Mike Küng and Benni Hörburger) noticed a constant progress in the target parameters. The final PHI SONATA shows an extremely forgiving flight behaviour. Its very clean surface (double 3D shaping in optimized zig zag direction) shows its effect by keeping the airflow on the wing even at very high angles of attack. The optimized intake, reinforcement shape and strap pattern enable a new benchmark in takeoff simplicity.

The whole construction is very strong and form stable. Even when loaded extremely highly (185DaN x8G) during the certification load test, the test sample was not destroyed. The materials of the extra strong rigging were selected carefully to avoid trim changes by line shrinking / stretching. The SONATA is a heavy duty paraglider in every matter.
