d'envol and CZWingspresent a new
prototype parawing, designed in Catalonia and built in La Pampa:
rogallo parachute of 45 m2, has been designed from the original
information from NASA, published around 1970 and resuming the project.
The project aims to explore the possibilities of designing and building
prototypes of free flight, linking synergies, know-how and
to either side of the Atlantic. It is a very simple
design, unpretentious because it expects a glide up
to 2.4, and for use in small glides in sufficiently inclined dunes, and
tows at low altitudes.
