During a test flight
the release handle of a paraglider harness with integrated emergency
equipment container ripped out of the connection strap. The company
VONBLON used this handle for the Liga Integral and Zeta harnesses.
Therefore all harnesses of this pattern are affected.
In agreement with the
producer VONBLON and the German company Swing, the DHV has therefore, as
a precaution, reached the following safety measures:
- The handle of all the
paraglider harnesses refered to above must be checked and if necessary
instruction comes into force when published in the News for Paragliders
and Hang Gliders (NfGH). The saftey measures must be carried out before
the next usage.
The checking and reworking
will be carried out by the Austrian production and development company
