Safety note for all CHARLY rescue parachutes

rettercontainer-newsCheck of the reserve handle-container-connection
Due to a problem that has recently come into focus that the reserve handle, especially of harnesses with integrated rescue compartment, can get caught in the lines after deployment and block the opening of the rescue system, we have limited the maximum length of the connection between the reserve handle and the inner container of the rescue system to 37 cm for CHARLY rescue parachutes. The picture shows how to measure the length.

The length of the connection between reserve handle and inner container should be checked by the pilots before the next flight.

Update about the PARALOCK

TrennkarabinerLightweight, safe, just as convenient to use as a conventional paragliding carabiner – and yet more durable and separable under load. This is the current status of the Paralock pre-series.

In terms of safety, stregth and function, the current Paralock pre-series is faultless. We have ensured this through extensive testing. The first flights with prototypes by Tom Grabner and other test pilots were still made without a security cap.
