Phi SONATA: the new Baseline

SONATA: the new baseline

The SONATA is an A-wing with 40 cells and many technical features enabling the combination of an extremely high safety level and good performance, a precise handling and a lot of fun. The usage of 30D Dominico cloth and extra diagonal reinforcement in combination with separately sliced finger ribs offer high durability and long lasting form stability.

Designer's note

The PHI SONATA is the new baseline of our sport: the new reference. It redefines the safety, performance and fun level a modern paraglider is able to offer. The highest technical knowledge combined with 30 years experience in professional paraglider design made this wing possible.

During development the very experienced PHI test pilots team (Mike Küng and Benni Hörburger) noticed a constant progress in the target parameters. The final PHI SONATA shows an extremely forgiving flight behaviour. Its very clean surface (double 3D shaping in optimized zig zag direction) shows its effect by keeping the airflow on the wing even at very high angles of attack. The optimized intake, reinforcement shape and strap pattern enable a new benchmark in takeoff simplicity.

The whole construction is very strong and form stable. Even when loaded extremely highly (185DaN x8G) during the certification load test, the test sample was not destroyed. The materials of the extra strong rigging were selected carefully to avoid trim changes by line shrinking / stretching. The SONATA is a heavy duty paraglider in every matter.

Phi SONATA reviews

The SONATA is perfect for pilots leaving paragliding school who want maximum security without compromising on the ability to get high and in time, go far. It’s also suited to school instructors wanting a forgiving modern design that a broad range of students can master. Possibly for pilots who have limited airtime over the past few years and want to downgrade to a wing that will simplify the pilot demands and will tolerate mistimed input while being super easy and comfortable wing to fly. Low energy freedom!

I wish I’d had this in the early days of paragliding instruction. It would have spared me the grey hairs. Then again, my students would have flown away from the hill far too easily!
