Kea Canopy

Friday, April 08, 2016

We've got a new canopy inspired by the Kea, the endangered native bird that Skydive Franz sponsors with our 19,000ft Kea Jump. 

The Kea is the world's only alpine mountain parrot and are known for their intelligence and curiosity. They only live in the alpine areas in the South Island of New Zealand and there are fewer than 5000 of these wonderful birds left. 

Our Kea canopy has copied the beautiful colours the Kea has under its wings. 

The above photos show a tandem instructor and his passenger coming in to land and the photos of the wild Keas is by Andrew Walmsley on the Kea Conservation Trust website. More information about the Kea can be found at http://www.keaconservation.co.nz/
