  7. It is now 33 days ago that Parachutes de France released: Safety Bulletin BSC_06_002 Date: 21/04/06 : demanded to adjust the activation high of the safety system to a minimum of 325m. and 26 days ago that EASA released: AD No : 2006-0105-E Date: 28. April 2006 : The proposed solution of Parachutes de France Safety Bulletin BSC_06_002, dated 21.04.2006 is not accepted by EASA to provide an equivalent level of safety. As a consequence the unit may not act as a safety device. THE USE OF ALL THE Techno 240-B PERSONAL PARACHUTES IS PROHIBITED Is there some one who heard some news ?
  8. Hallo Giudo, I am not a certified vigil rigger. I do not know if there are certified vigil riggers. I am not certified to replace the small plastic loop protection heads. So will not do that without permission and clear instructions. It was just an suggestion how Vigil could help the owners in the field. I send the suggestion to them to but they did not answer. Have a nice day Wim
  9. I am wondering that Vigil does not come with a simple jumper friendly solution: Free repair of damaged cutters by a vigil certified rigger I checked a cutter made 12/2003 and it was simple to replace the small plastic loop protection heads. It cost me 5 seconds to remove them. (and insert again cost me the same time) If the construction of the cutters after 2003 is still identical it may possibly an “in the field job” Wim
  10. Hallo No.Fear The cutter of the Cypres is different. I does not need small plastic loop protection heads to prevent damaging the reserve loop. Blue skies Wim

  12. Ask your rigger to check if the pilot belongs to your gear, If yes check the pilot chute pressure see my list in the attachment Someone more data?
  13. Hi MooChooser Yes I am serious, The best videos from malfunctions an blown up canopies are taken from close distance…………………. Let me try to explain my thoughts with a simple picture: see attachment Have a nice day Wim
  14. Austria: All Tandems and Students must have a AAD All other licence jumpers have a free choice if they put one in there rig ore not 2004: 100% of students, 99.7%of intermediates, 98.3% of experts have a AAD At least at one club is a AAD mandatory to all jumpers
