RESERVE PARACHUTE REPACK NIGHT - 11 February 2016

The repack night at Antrim Forum went very well. Around 20 club members attended the deployment and repack session and despite a bit of headscratching and reference to packing instructions all managed to get their reserve parachutes packed, checked and installed in harnesses. If it all goes wrong and you find your wing a twisted mess and gravity taking over, you'll need to throw your reserve parachute. Can you locate the handle easily and throw and let go correctly? Is your reserve parachute properly packed and installed in your harness? Will it come out easily if you need to deploy?

Even if you normally send your reserve 'chute away for a repack, practice deployment at a local event such as this, rather than wait until you need to do it for real (hopefully not!) is very valuable.

THE WHOLE EVENT WAS FREE TO PAID-UP UHPC MEMBERS!!
