Wingloading Calculator

IMPORTANT!

Please be aware, when buying a new canopy, wing loading is only half the consideration. The construction of the canopy is just as important i.e. a Sabre, Xaos, Falcon or Stilleto.  Although all with the same wing loading will have a difference in performance, you should consider square vs. tapered (elliptical) and F11 vs. Hybrid vs. Zero P.  The bottom line is to take advice from riggers, instructors and dealers. Be especially aware when buying 2nd hand canopies !
