RESERVE PARACHUTE REPACK

Annual Reserve     Repack         Antrim Forum, 20 Lough Rd, Antrim BT41 4DQ         Thursday 1st Feb 2018             

Its that time of the year again, a chance to see what is hiding behind the red handle on the side of your harness. As you know it is recommended that your reserve parachute is deployed and repacked at least once a year.

Around a third of the current members turned up and deployed their reserves from the swinging rope. Repacking prompted a bit of head scratching at times but in the end everybody got their reserve 'chute packed and installed in the harness.

IMPORTANT: Make sure that the reserve is installed in the harness CORRECTLY so that it can easily pull out without twisting and jamming - i.e.   have the deployment bag installed with handle attachment uppermost.
