    Safety Notice: Woody Valley buckles

    Woody Valley have issued an important Safety Notice regarding their buckles:

    "Dear friend!
    We need to inform you we are experiencing unwanted openings of some of our light automatic buckles located on the main chest strap of our harnesses. For a matter of safety, we decided to write a safety note that will be published by the DHV.

    There are about 12000 harnesses equipped with this kind of buckle and so far we’ve registered problems only with the "07/13" and "08/13" batches.
    For the records, "07/13" and "08/13" are the month/year production date engraved on our buckles. Company policy will be exclusively for a prompt and free buckle replacement.
    We apologise for the inconvenience and we thank you in advance for your precious cooperation in managing this issue as professionally as we can.
    BR, Woody Valley staff"

  7. Safety Notice: Supair Delight harness reserve extraction

    Safety Notice: Supair Delight harness reserve extraction

    Sup'Air have issued an safety warning for their Delight harness...

    Sup'Air DELIGHT harness

    We have noticed possible reserve parachute extraction issues on this model.
    The reserve parachute extraction can be influenced by multiple factors described as follows :

    • The reserve parachute's volume.

    • How fully packed the reserve parachute containers adjacent storage pockets are.

    • The direction the handle pull is pulled.

    Our tests and feedbacks by test-pilots have demonstrated that the extraction made with certain models was facilitated by using removable foam pads placed inside the reserve parachute pocket.

    You can contact your SUP'AIR dealer (who you bought your Delight harness from) or SUP'AIR FRANCE directly [email protected] to receive the reserve parachute container foam PADS free of charge.
    You absolutely must conduct an extraction sequence during a hang-test simulating a full flight mode ( storage pocket filled with your backpack, clothing and miscellaneous items… ).

    We will ask to all DELIGHT owners to install those removable pads if necessary to validate a correct reserve parachute extraction procedure.
