Packing manual - FFE-201 (-C) Can't Post

I'm looking for COMPLETE PACKING MANUAL for emergency parachute FFE -201 (-C) - Free Flight Enterprises
What is the total life for this parachute and max packing time.
I have such a model in which the links comes to the container.

My email - bartosz.miara@toyocar.pl

See the Preserve I instructions on the FFE site, on this page:

http://www.freeflightent.com/...ser-instructions.php

Don't know if they authorize over 180 days outside the USA. Another manual for the Preserve V mentions "consistent with the F.A.R.s" (US regulations), so one is probably good to whatever repack interval is legal in one's own country.


Para-Phernalia in one of their Para-Phernalia Softie pilot rig manuals write "Para-Phernalia, Inc. and Free Flight Enterprises have established a 20-year service life from the date of component manufacture for the Softie Pilot Emergency System and the Preserve
line of emergency parachutes."

BUT:
a) You may be able to ignore that outside the USA

b) If it isn't in the manual for your actual product, you can say that statement has no applicability. The above manual for the Preserve I, fresh from the company's "Packing and User Instructions" page, does not include the limit. There is no life limit in the Preserve I manual!

c) You may be dealing with an FFE canopy NOT in a Para-Phernalia container for pilots, so what Para-Phernalia says has no bearing on you.

Thanks for ot, but ( http://www.freeflightent.com/forms/PV_Pack_Inst_1_3.pdf ) is only manual packing canopy.

interested in me packing canopy to contanier. In my parachute is a place for links inside contanier, not like here ( http://www.freeflightent.com/forms/PV_Pack_Inst_1_3.pdf )

Hi Bartek, you should then see the packing manual of the container manufacturer.
