Airworthiness advisory Safetey Equipment on the Harness Husky

SubjectSafetey Equipment on the Harness Husky
The Test Release of Safety Equipment on the Paraglider Harness Husky from the company Finsterwalder demonstated an unacceptably high strength requirement for activation. This is caused by the velcro bands next to the release splint.

In agreement with the company Finsterwalder the DHV has decided on the following safety measures:

  1. On all paraglider harnesses of the design "Husky" the strength required to release is to be checked.
  2. Those release grips that fail the check must be reworked.

The airworthiness instruction comes into force when published in the Nachrichten fuer Gleitsegel- und Hanggleiterfuehrer (NfGH). The safty measures must be carried out before the next use of the equipment.

The check and, when necessary, exchange will be carried out by the company Finsterwalder GmbH, Charly Produkte, Am Osterösch3, 87637 Seeg, Tel ++49 8364 1286, Fax ++49 8364 8426
