    Well please hurry and put the correct manual on the website. As a rigger I can assure you my customers never supply me with the manual that came with their product. I always have to find the manual on my own.

    Hi everyone, Firebird is an US owned and based company since 2017. We are headquartered in Eloy and many of the people here and around the US jump our RUSH or other products with positive feedbacks. We can name Steve & Sara Curtis, Jason Peters, Sean MacCormac, Andy Malchiodi, Kim Winslow as satisfied users. The RUSH has a TSO c23D and has no service life limit. Same for other Firebird products We did realize that the old version was still on our website and the new manual will be uploaded shortly. We apologize for that mistake as we are working on a new website. Every product comes with the new manual on an USB stick, so that actual customers have the latest version. usa@flyfirebird.com

    Hi Joe, You are about to enter a crosswalk but you see a car speeding at you. Well, you do have the right of way. The driver is breaking the law. But, if you are dead, does it really matter? Jerry Baumchen

    One problem with debating the 'legality' of going against Mfr's recommendations is the liability issue. I wouldn't pack something the mfr says is 'too old'. My 'fear' wouldn't be issues with the FAA. It would be with the ambulance chasers who could convince the family that I should be held responsible (financially) if something went wrong. "Ladies & gentlemen of the jury. My client's father (son, daughter, mother, husband, wife, whatever) trusted the so-called 'certified' rigger to safely inspect and pack his reserve. Instead, the rigger ignored the manufacturer's instructions to not pack one that old..." Perhaps I'm overcautious. But I would not take the chance.
