Firebird - Demon

The DEMON is a fully elliptical high-performance sport canopy.

Development and Construction: The DEMON was developed utilizing a completely new computer program, the first to project the profile of an open, air-filled canopy, allowing the individual cells and sections to be exactly calculated. The result is an open canopy absolutely smooth and free of any folds or creases – clearly more efficient and effective – and therefore stronger performing. Closed end cells, partially closed middle cells, new production and manufacturing techniques, radial and axial bottom skin reinforcement are just a few of the innovations in the DEMON.

Performance: The DEMON is ONLY for expert and extreme canopy pilots who already have experience with high-performance canopies at relatively high wing loads. While its consistent, on-heading openings are appreciated, the DEMON´s flight and landing characteristics are thrilling and impressive: Responsive and agile in turns, aggressive in dives, the DEMON lifts earlier on final approach and can fly stable at lower speeds – while maintaining performance – for amazingly long, flat swooping landings.

DEMON – setting a new standard for the future.


Manufacture: Firebird
