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 sav@supair.com 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.

SHGC XC League 2012 Winners

The 2012 Southern Hang Gliding Club (SHGC) cross country (XC) season wasn't the best in terms of the number of XC-able days, especially in the south of the United Kingdom (there seemed to be quite a bit more "Oop North" this year) but then there were some real corkers on some days. Many pilots managed to achieve first XCs and personal bests, some big XC flights dreamt of for many years became a reality (and then some), and even a long-standing British XC record was broken!
