During development of our Fire rig, we used the most modern materials for construction we could find, which allowed us to create a very comfortable, long-lasting, and mainly - very safe rig. Development took us 3 years, and another 2 for droptests. We choose US TSO-C23d as our testing program, one of the best and strictest flight test programs. Max load weight was set at 136 kg. (300lbs), max deployment speed at 309 km\h (170 knots). Then, following test programs protocol, max load weight was set to 165 kg (1.2 coefficient), while max deployment speed set to 370 km\h(1.2 coefficient). We made twice the required droptests. Fire became commercially available in 2008. And now, after thousands of produced rigs, we can honestly say - it works! Fire rigs are reliable, long-lasting, have a wide size chart to fit the strangest requests and Main\Reserve combinations. A big bonus is that a MARD system is an option(ours is called DRD). On top of that, the price is very competitive.
