The Benefits of Reflex Stability
The MacJet customized reflex airfoils enables you to fly with no surprises and is resistant to collapse even in rough air. It features excellent stability throughout the full weight and speed range. Managing the angle and radius of the turn is effortless despite its high reflex performance. The canopy is moderately damped in all axes and offers flexibility and agility in turns. It does not overshoot or sit back.
Enjoy the Reflex Performance with Ease
Excellent launching and landing characteristics are typical of all MacPara gliders. The MacJet is no different. These characteristic offers the pilot safe easy take offs and landings in no wind conditions even when heavily loaded. The brake pressure is light and the turns are pleasant when the trimmers are in their closed position. When they are fully released (glider accelerated) the brake pressure increases rapidly. That is why the long trimmers and the wing tip steering kit have been included into the design.
A Better Design
The canopy has an aspect ratio of 5.23 and is fitted with new MacPara design. The MacJet has 58 cells with diagonal segments. Lines are attached to every second and the lines are divided to three tiers. The MacJet is equipped with rear-riser trimmers with a long range for decelerating (6 cm) and accelerating (12 cm) of the glider. The risers include split A’s to facilitate Big Ears, a wing tip steering kit for accelerated flight and a torque compensator.
Quality New Features
You will notice great attention to small details on the MacJet. It is equipped with especially thin brake handles with magnets making them more comfortable to hold during flight. The brake handles are also fitted with swivels and additional loops for steering use during long flights. With the addition of strong magnets on the brake handles, placing the handles on the risers in flight or during take-off preparation is much easier. Velcro closures on the wingtips make access easier to remove any sand, grass or small stones from the glider. Like all MacPara paragliders, the use of high-quality materials and constant quality control measures throughout the manufacturing process are evident.
The MacJet is available in five sizes and covering a total weight range of 77 kg to 180 kg. Please check the specifications for full details to best suit your hook in weight.

The MacJet is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; Skytex 40, from Porcher Sport (NCV). Because for any glider, the part that always wears out first is the leading edge, we use Skytex 45 with evolution coating E85A for this. For the less stressed areas of the sail we use Skytex 40 with E38A coating. For the supporting and diagonal ribs we use Skytex 40 with “hard finish” coating E29A. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
