timed out tandem rig Can't Post

was wondering if it is legal to jump a timed out tandem rig by yourself, without a passenger? Talking strong dual hawk, 12 yrs old(I think).

I'll give you $50 for the 12 year old gear Smile

Correct as I read it.

However, the OP's question is still a good one...

The short answers is yes you can. Provided you can find a rigger who is willing to sign off as airworthy and repack it and seal it.

Now, I say that knowing full well there will be shortly a bunch on here to attack me and say bullshit, for stating that...WinkTongue

Thanks, that's about what I was thinking.

The reason I ask, is because I'm looking at a couple old rigs for large flag setups for future use

Maybe this will bring some more responses :)
