The New King of Mini Wings (SONATA)
I’ve flown, tested and sold most mini wings in the search for the best, and once a new best is found, that’s all I fly until it’s superseded. Call me biased if you like, but please try it yourself – it will surprise you! I look forward to your feedback. 

We helped bring this wing to the market - lots of discussions with designer Hannes Papesh, aiming for a new world best miniwing. PHI’s test pilot, Mike Kung is also always on the quest to develop the perfect high wind miniwing, for his stunning high wind and ground handling demonstrations, so it's hugely fulfilling to have it in limited production. It does not disappoint, has yet to be beaten and has quickly become NZ’s most popular miniwing. The handling is truly exhilarating and delivers everything your other bigger wing doesn’t. Exquisite, agile, surgical precision, along with fantastic performance and safety. Alan Hills (SkyWings Paragliding, NZ)

    The SONATA is an A-wing with 40 cells and many technical features enabling the combination of an extremely high safety level and good performance, a precise handling and a lot of fun. The usage of 30D Dominico cloth and extra diagonal reinforcement in combination with separately sliced finger ribs offer high durability and long lasting form stability.


    The PHI SONATA is the new baseline of our sport: the new reference. It redefines the safety, performance and fun level a modern paraglider is able to offer. The highest technical knowledge combined with 30 years experience in professional paraglider design made this wing possible.

    During development the very experienced PHI test pilots team (Mike Küng and Benni Hörburger) noticed a constant progress in the target parameters. The final PHI SONATA shows an extremely forgiving flight behaviour. Its very clean surface (double 3D shaping in optimized zig zag direction) shows its effect by keeping the airflow on the wing even at very high angles of attack. The optimized intake, reinforcement shape and strap pattern enable a new benchmark in takeoff simplicity.

    The whole construction is very strong and form stable. Even when loaded extremely highly (185DaN x8G) during the certification load test, the test sample was not destroyed. The materials of the extra strong rigging were selected carefully to avoid trim changes by line shrinking / stretching. The SONATA is a heavy duty paraglider in every matter.

    SONATA mini wings come with robust high-quality risers equipped with top-of-the-range ballbearing Harken 18 pulleys at both ends, 70 mm trimmers (except size12) and a 150 mm speedbar system. These are expensive risers that you will only find on high-end gliders. All three sizes 12, 14, and 16 have been Load Tested (EN 926.1) for 1,467 kg in over 3 3-second test (1,693 kg peak) without damage to the glider or to the lines. This translates to the following G load test values

    • 19 G load test for SONATA 12
    • 16 G load test for SONATA 14
    • 14 G load test for SONATA16
