skybums parafoils - lifting payloads since 1986
Sky Bums parafoils are very stable lifting machines that fly in a wide range of winds and produce a large amount of lift.  The 20 and 30 sq ft parafoils have 12 cells and the 40 sq ft can have either 12 or 16 depending on whether a higher aspect ratio kite is required. They are ideally suited for lifting cameras, parachuting fauna or just general "sky garbage" into the air. All the parafoils come complete with matching drogues and stuff  sacks. The parafoil 10 (shown below right) is a much smaller kite and as such does not create the same sort of lift but is still capable of lifting smaller items and "sky garbage" quite easily. The 40 sq ft is the largest standard sized parafoil we make but we have built up to 350 sq ft manlifters so tell us the size you want and we will give you a quote.

Shown at the bottom of the page left is a 2 colour 12 cell 20 sq ft parafoil and, at the top left, a rainbow 16 cell special order 80 sq ft. We can build them to your own colour specifications and even appliqué designs on the face. If you have any ideas we can give you a quote.
