emergency parachute · rogallo type

The Windsos Drive Lite parachute is a fully steerable parachute inspired «Rogallo» model and is especially suitable for pilots who want to be able to control and steer the parachute on their descent. It is the choice of people with experience in long cross-country flights and competition pilots. This system has a very fast opening and a good glide ratio.

The low sink rate of just 3.5m/s makes landings really smooth preventing further injuries. In case you do not want to steer the parachute, the Drive Lite has a pre-brake system when deploying it, which largely reduces the horizontal advance, behaving like a conventional parachute. Made of a light fabric, it is one of the lightest «Rogallos» on the market.
