Rescue pack course 2019-1
Fri, Feb 15, 2019
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Turnhalle Stiftung Bühl
The annual repacking is mainly used for the static discharge of the emergency parachute. The load arises during normal use of the harness by friction and counteracts a quick and symmetrical opening of the emergency parachute. The annual repackaging is therefore a meaningful renewal of the accompanying life insurance.
Every pilot should be able to pack his own parachute. When traveling abroad, you will not find a packer. So that you can learn the parachute packing yourself in the context of a small pack course, the gym of the Foundation Bühl in Wädenswil is available to us.
Please note the following info for your preparation:
The emergency parachute should be well discharged for at least two days before the new fold (vent at approx. 70% humidity). The emergency screen is best packed in a paraglider inner packsack for transport. In addition, the connection of rescuer and harness should not be disconnected.
