    FAA Letter re Mfgrs Service Life

    The Parachutes Australia Manual http://www.parachutesaustralia.com/s2/imgs/prods/airfrc_rsrv/airforce_manual.pdf The Airforce Reserve Parachute has a service life of 20 years from the Date of Manufacture stamped on the Parachute Canopy (whether used or in storage), due to the natural degradation of the textiles used for its manufacture. http://www.parachutesaustralia.com/s2/SB/PASB9502.pdf At each periodic inspection the Packer/Riggers must check the age and condition of the equipment. Those components that have a finite service life shall be permanently withdrawn from service when they reach their service life, or earlier if deemed un-airworthy.
  10. seems weird on the used canopies. Maybe that perspective was changed Pulse sizes 190, 210, 230, and 260 with serial numbers between 000001 and 001378, Date of Manufacture prior to 16 July 2012.

    AAD use - let's hear it!

    A Cypres and wearing no helmet Below is what is written in Sports Parachutist Feb 1993, Tom Piras was killed as a result of a freefall collision in Panama on December 13th last year. He was coaching a group of intermediate skydivers in 4-way FS. The video of the jump showed that there was a funnel on exit at 12,500ft and one of the jumpers ended up low beneath Piras. His pilot chute at this point came out of its pouch and Tom Piras was flipped by the deploying canopy; his head contacted the Panamanian’s knee and he was knocked unconscious. The cameraman gave chase but eventually had to abandon the attempt. Piras had been falling in a head-down attitude; he did recover consciousness enough to turn over and start to pull his reserve handle but he was by now too low. Ironically he was wearing a Cypres AAD but had not switched it on at the start of the days jumping
  15. +1. And be aware of others gear. Don't touch but tell. Fair point saw this on my news feed this morning. In free fall gear buddy check. https://www.facebook.com/andrey.veselov.14/videos/10205295561242776/
