Pilots often downsize much quicker with speed wings compared to a skydiving canopy and paragliders.
Keep reading for a few tips on why big wings are important. Something to think about when your building your wing quiver. 🎯
Without many flights under your belt, more fabric over your head is the best insurance you can get with no cutaway or reserve.
A bigger wing also opens doors to soaring and puts you in the air for longer on each flight.
A bigger wing means you can fly more aggressively rather than letting the wingload give you aggresion.
A bigger wing takes more skill to go fast, fly proximity and swoop.
A bigger wing allows you to travel on glide. You can get to lines and get out of lines with more options.
A bigger wing will make you safer on launch and landing which is where most injuries occur.
With a bigger wing you will have a better chance of avoiding injury and learn more along the way.
The bigger wing also opens up way more places to fly, and especially to take off.
You might be fine on an 11 but on a 13 the extra time in the air counts for a lot.
More time to feel more time to make descions. Yes, you might not be able to follow someone the same weight who is on an 11, and your videos won't look as fast.
But you will learn to fly proxy safer and better and it takes air time.
When you hike for five hours and find the conditions are not great and the take off sucks its great to have a bigger wing.
If you go to the beach or a lake you can soar on a bigger wing much easier. Soaring is like wind tunnel for canopy. It will help boost your progression.
I forgot, I've have only ever gone to hospital on 9m and smaller. 🏥 🙄
The best wing will always be the one you have flown most. Enjoy bigger wings ❤️👍 Let me know about your journey on speed wings.
