Paraglider rescue device TAPA X-ALPS (all sizes)
Skywalk has issued a safety notice for the TAPA X-ALPS paraglider rescue system (all sizes). The inner containers are affected. In one case, a deployment blockage occurred during indoor rescue training. The excess length of one of the 4 container leaves had been pulled into the elastic line loop (central closure of the inner container) and blocked it. The problem is described in Skywalk`s safety communication and owners are given various options for repair. Owners can also carry out the repair themselves.
