    if Bergan told you that he was lying, not a surprise, he is used to.
    Aerodyne has a habit of hiding problems.
    Currently the situation is as follows:
    before grounding Icon rigs, French Civilian Aviation gives one last chance to Aerodyne to fix its problems of reseve non-opening by manual action.
    As Aerodyne will continue to deny and refuse to admit the reality of the facts, Icon rigs will be grounded, it is only a matter of time.

    I agree it takes long, but it is because it is right now in discussion, the only way for Aerodyne to prevent its Icon rigs from being grounded is to solve their problems of malfunctions by opening manually the reserve, but it will cost them too much in terms of money and image to accept that,  especially because they start from very far away...

    Eric, I have the utmost respect for your knowledge and contributions to sport parachuting. Still, I'm wondering what substantive evidence you have or could share where you mention that based on your research and tests, if the PC is inside the container, then it's best to have the cutter above it, which is something contrary to how the #1 selling container on the market is engineered.
