SubjectParaglider Matrix M DHV GS-01-0738-00

A flight behaviour that deviates from the type certificate for a Firebird Matrix M, MZM GS-13-04-300 (certified paraglider) was recognised. This information concerns a stable stall.

In agreement with the manufacturer Firebird Sky Sport AG, Schäfflerstraße 15,D-87629 Füssen the DHV has decided, as a precaution, on the following safety measure:

All certified paragliders if the type Firebird Matrix M, MZM GS-13-0X-XXX having a serial number beginning with 13 03 100 to 13 07 800 must be checked before their next flight.

The airworthiness instruction comes into force when published in the NfGH (Paragliding and Hanggliding News). The safety measures must be carried out before the next flight made with the equipment.

The check will be carried out by Firebird Sky Sport AG, Schäfflerstraße 15, D-87629 Füssen,
