Safety Notice: reserve deployment bags
Independence have issued a safety notice concerning their reserve parachute deployment bags.
“At the seam-line of the isolated upper loop, which is used to attach the deployment handle, a perforation could possibly cause a material weakening of factory delivered deployment bags. This seam-line, if properly processed, has to be able to bear a load of 70 daN. Yet it was proven that a lower strength of this component can occur.
Please check immediately whether your deployment bag is part of the concerned production lot”.
