SMART RESERVE PACKING MANUAL REVISED January 10
What is Aerodyne all about? It’s pretty simple really, something of a
mantra for our company:
Better Gear, Better Value, Better Skydives
Better Gear has always been part of Aerodyne’s DNA. We began with the do-it-all 7 cell, the
Triathlon. We created the Smart Reserve, known around the world for superior quality. We
created the Pilot, arguably the best-opening performance canopy on the market. With the
Mamba, we’ve taken non-cross- braced elliptical canopy design to new performance highs. We
developed a better cutaway system with the mini-force ring; even our hook knife outclasses the
competition by a mile. “Better” really drives everything we do; as we develop innovative
fabrics like zpX, as we bring out canopies like the Sensei and more A2 sizes, as we continue to
improve an already outstanding Icon rig, we are following this mantra.
The second part is about providing Better Value. This is not necessarily about the lowest price,
but about providing great value for money. We know our customers work hard and play hard
and expect to get real value for the money they spend. Better products at comparable prices
mean better value. Better customer service, provided by people who really know the
equipment is also part of Aerodyne’s commitment to better value.
The final part is about Better Skydives. We are a company owned and staffed by skydivers. We
get it! Skydiving is fun, and the better your jumps, the more fun you have. We support this by
not only making the best gear and providing the best value we can, but by taking our product
out there. You’ll see us at the DZ almost every weekend, jumping, load organizing, and
generally having fun. We ask that our sponsored teams and individuals do the same, putting
their time and energy into improving your skydives and your fun. That’s why you skydive, and
we’re here to help.

Canopy Selector
This canopy selector program is designed as a non-exclusive guide to selecting a canopy. It is designed
to be used to assist you in finding an appropriate model and size of Aerodyne canopy for your exit
weight, experience level and expectations. Please remember that in no way can this selector replace
professional expert advice that is based upon firsthand knowledge of your current experience, skill level
and frame of reference.
Only training, experience, currency and a healthy body and mind can reduce (but not eliminate) the risk
to you of danger, serious bodily injury, or death. Regardless of your time in the sport, never hesitate to
consult other more experienced or knowledgeable individuals. They are often happy to help you make
appropriate decisions. At Aerodyne we recommend that, for both your main and reserve canopies, you
choose a canopy suitable for your experience level, which you can land safely at your normal drop
zone’s field elevation, in no wind, in hot summer conditions, utilizing a normal straight in approach and
progressive flare.
Please note that this selector is based upon exit weight and International Standard Atmosphere (ISA)
conditions. Exit weight is body weight + equipment + clothing. ISA conditions are at Mean Sea Level
(MSL) with a temperature of 15 degrees Celsius and 101,325 Pa (29.92”Hg). Canopy wing performance
degrades at higher altitudes and with higher temperatures.
Aerodyne has developed an objective method to determine the degree of ellipticity of a canopy’s
planform. We have dubbed this value the “planform factor” (Pf). A higher planform factor equates to a
greater degree of ellipticity and will likely exhibit the associated characteristics. Typically an elliptical
canopy is more equally pressurized for better flight performance and exhibits better flare capability.
Similarly the toggle pressure is usually lighter and the turn response is quicker. While these
observations are not absolute, they are often typical of those exhibited by canopies with more elliptical
planforms.

2.4 IN FLIGHT USE
Should you encounter a line twist after canopy deployment, do not release the brakes until
you have cleared the twist.
After the opening, be ready to steer the canopy away from the other traffic, either with the
rear risers or the steering toggles. Once clear from traffic, check your canopy and your
position relative to the landing area. Prepare for landing by following a trajectory that allows
you to set up at an altitude sufficient for a final approach and landing facing the wind.
Remember that your SMART RESERVE will likely not glide as far as your main canopy.
When landing, flare the canopy symmetrically in such a way that maximum lift is achieved at
the moment of touchdown. This will also reduce forward speed. CAUTION: TOGGLE
DEFLECTION TO THE STALL POINT MAY BE LESS THAN THAT REQUIRED FOR YOUR MAIN
CANOPY. BE CAREFULL NOT TO STALL THE CANOPY DURING THE LANDING FLARE.
Do not turn low to the ground! Turns increase both vertical and forward speed. Without
sufficient altitude your canopy will not be able to recover from the turn before landing.
Please remember it is more important to maintain a stable flight and make a proper landing
flare, than to face the wind. When you are not absolutely sure that sufficient altitude remains
to turn into the wind, continue to fly the canopy on its present heading, and execute a good
flare.
DANGER!
DO NOT MAKE A TURN CLOSE TO THE GROUND

3 MAINTENANCE
REPAIRS TO THE SMART RESERVE MUST BE MADE EITHER BY THE
MAUFACTURER OR BY A QUALIFIED PARACHUTE RIGGER, AND IN COMPLIANCE
WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS.
3.1 MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES:
Important points to note during the inspection are:
1. Visually inspect the canopy for defects or damage to the fabric, tapes and seams. Any
holes or tears must be patched with an overlay or standard sew-in patch. No ripstop tape
patches are allowed. Any damage that requires the replacement of an entire panel or cell
must be done by the manufacturer.
2. Check that all slider stops are present, intact and secure. There are four slider stops, one
on each of the outer B and C line groups.
3. Check that all line attachment tapes are secure (Bartack present).
4. Check suspension and steering lines continuity, and ensure that all connections and finger
traps have been stitched. Lines that are worn or have broken strands must be replaced.
5. Inspect the connector links for serviceability, and check that they have been correctly
tightened, or in case of soft links, verify their integrity.
6. Check the slider for correct installation; the reinforcing tape must be facing the canopy.
Inspect the inner surface of the grommets for nicks and sharp edges. Inspect the fabric for
wear and tear.
7. Using the manufacturer’s manual as a guide, inspect the harness/container system into
which the SMART RESERVE is to be packed. Check all stitching for completion. Inspect
hardware for damage and corrosion (rust may be removed with a lightly oiled rag).
8. Inspect the pilot chute, bridle and deployment bag.
9. The ripcord cable must not be frayed or kinked. Inspect the pin and swages for security.
10. The canopy’s serial number, name of manufacturer and date of manufacture printed on
the identification panel, must be recorded on the packing data card.

SMART RESERVE PACKING MANUAL REVISED January 10
11. POROSITY: Check porosity in the following cases
-After 10 uses
-After immersion in water once the canopy is dry
-After 20 repacks (based on a 6month repack cycle)
-After any use in abnormal conditions
To make packing your SMART RESERVE easier, to prolong the life of the canopy and to
prevent damage during packing, please observe the following instructions:
A- Pack where the wind cannot affect your packing of the SMART RESERVE.
B- Do not pack on concrete or asphalt. Pack your SMART RESERVE on a dry lawn or on
a packing mat, thereby minimizing the wear on the lines, links and fabric.
C- Inspect your SMART RESERVE prior to packing. Look for any damage, wear and tear.
Ensure that the lines have no twists, tangles or turns.
3.2 FREQUENCY OF MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Verify local regulations on reserve canopy maintenance. If none are available, follow these
recommendations. Service the reserve canopy at 1 year intervals in normal conditions of use
and storage. If the conditions are different, the time between maintenance operations may
be reduced by the user.
3.3 STORAGE
Textile and other materials used in the construction of all parachutes are sensitive to
environmental elements. The parachute must be stored in a room where the temperature is
kept between 15 degrees Celsius (59 °F) and 30 degrees Celsius (86 °F), and where the
humidity is kept between 15% and 70%.
Further, the parachute must be protected from:
-Sunlight
-Temperatures of 93°C (200 °F) and above
-Acid and corrosive agents (e.g. car battery electrolyte)
-Rodents and pests
-Chlorine
-Smoke
When not in use, the equipment should be stored in its carry bag.
