Flight Software

EDC guided parafoil flight software is the most advanced in the industry providing excellent accuracy and into the wind landings.  It is highly adaptive, computing in-flight estimates of airspeed, descent rate, turn bias, turn gain, glide slope gain, wind speed and wind direction.  By using a wind fixed frame, the software naturally handles high winds.
