Airway VX

Airway - VX



The development carries with it a number of technical solutions used by manufacturers as a modern parachuting, and paragliding equipment. The Twenty-one wing panel has small elliptical edge at the rear and is made from high-quality fabrics from Gelvenor Textyle and NCV Porcher Marine.
Leading edge on the wing has a pronounced sweep, which, in turn, determines the high speed wing, and its dynamic maneuvering ability in a wide range of radii.
Construction is performed entirely as the traditional paraglider equipment manufacturers.
The internal design of the wing consists of twelve dozen uniformed and intermediate ribs, which are mounted between the diagonal bracing supporting the profile and top skin.

Lines System:
The line layouts are taken from paragliding equipment and has the four-row line scheme with transverse forks, mounted on six power-carrying straps on each row.
Dynamic trim tabs are used for regulating the angle of attack of the wings. Four-row support line system allows to increase the possibilities for the pilot in control of the wing. Besides the traditional paraglider and parachutes control the canopy can be flown with the aid of the dynamic trim tabs, mounted to the lift webbing. Trimmers make it possible to reduce the angle of attack without any strain to the lower wings skin and the whole profile.


In order to meet the needs of both pilots, paratroopers and Airway have developed two types of suspension systems.

Suspension system

"Ground launch harness" - This is designed on the classic parachute system layout.



"Ski flying harness" - This is a lightened layout of the classical paraglider layout.
