* Required Fields

The hybrid SQR from Companion founds a new generation of reserve parachute, merging the advantages of the classic round canopy and the cross version into an innovative and forward-looking technology. The SQR has been newly developed from the start, and is precisely directed to meet the needs of pilots and packers.

Companion SQR: The best of two worlds

Square Round: the best of two worlds

Countless computer simulations and practical tests have been an essential part of an extensive development process. The result is a reserve with aerodynamically enhanced pendulum stability, not trimmed to track in flight. The standard example the Companion is one of the lightest reserve parachutes at present.

Main advantages

Improved opening

Improved opening

Very fast opening – a result of comprehensive real-life tests.

High swing resistance

High swing resistance

Exceptionally high swing resistance – highly developed canopy with Air-Jets.

Light weight

Light weight

Minimum weight – perfect choice of materials.

Reliable packing

Reliable packing

Simple, reliable packing – like a round canopy

Features

  • Improved opening behaviour and good pendulum stability achieved by aerodynically refined Airjets.
  • Light weight due to careful choice of ideal materials
  • Straightforward packing - similar to a round canopy - using practical packing aids.
  • Not trimmed to track (go sideways) in flight (which most cross / square reserves do)
  • Comparatively few lines for easy sorting.
  • Tested for water landings! A mix of traditional with new low-shrink fabrics means that repeated full function is guaranteed after wet landings.
  • Low descent values and high resistance to swinging as the result of comprehensive practical tests and aerodynamic analysis.
  • Reliable packing thanks to useful packing aids, and simple instructions for the packer.
  • Certified to all flight standards.

The technology: modern CFD simulation

For the first time in the paraglider market Companion introduces a reserve whose development has been based on authentic computational flow analysis, verified by an extensive progression of practical tests. At the core of the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is a continuous feedback system, which repeatedly recalculates, many times over, an analysis of the deformation and strain on the reserve in the air, each time taking into account all that has gone before.

This is an important aspect for reserve parachute analysis because these deform a lot due to their pronounced curvature. Our own simulation software and test vehicle makes it possible to make a multiplicity of numerical CFD analyses, as well as deployment tests. At the moment this approach is unique in rescue parachute development.

Lifetime Extension

You can have the maximum service life of 10 years extended by 2 years through a manufacturer inspection.

Lifetime extension

You can have the maximum service life of 10 years extended by 2 years through a manufacturer inspection. In order to obtain this extension, the reserve has to be sent to the manufacturer at the end of the 10 years of operational life. The work entails various visual inspections and measurement of fabric porosity and line lengths. Finally, the reserve is stamped with a revalidation certificate, repacked and sent back to the customer. The extension can only be arranged via the companion website.
