Paraflite Orion Manual Can't Post

I'm looking for a manual or packing instructions for a Paraflite Orion.

Any other relevant info on this reserve would be appreciated too.

thanks
Sam

I'm somewhat surpirsed it isn't on parachutemanuals.com or another electronic reference I have but...

I do have a hard copy and could supply a copy if you can't get it electronically.

Don't think it was on the market long. It was pre Swift Plus. 210 sq. ft., 7 cell, Lissaman 7808 airfoil (same as most of the the early paraflite products), aspect ratio 1:2.23, pack volume 440 cu in per paraflite. I think any Orion would be at least 19 or 20 years old.

I've packed one once or twice but not since the mid 90's.

If anyone has hard manuals of this or any other manual missing from http://Parachutemanuals.com if they are willing to ship them to me I can scan them and put them online shortly after getting them.

I have hundreds of old manuals.
Would you like to send a truck?

Orion was introduced a couple of years after the 5-cell Swift. It uses the same construction methods, the same manual and the same packing methods.
