Airbags offer an unbeatable weight to usefulness ratio. Our airbags are constructed to inflate rapidly and to protect the pilot's posterior including as much of the back area as is practically possible.
This includes materials like Nitinol wire and a polycarbonate plate. These can be bent (for example when packing up the harness), but both will always go back to their former shape. This characteristic can be used, for example, to inflate the airbag well before take off.
Rucksack and harness in one – both are light and tough. This is why reversible harnesses are ideal companions for pilots who enjoy hiking up mountains or simply like to travel light. The safety aspect is at the forefront: NOVA keeps optimising the protectors and the rescue system to way above the stipulated standard.
The container of the reserve under the seat board is designed like a tube container. In combination with the dedicated reserve container this ensures a problem-free deployment in any pulling direction. The parachute is easy to install and operate and uses zips plus a rod and two loops.
