RIGGERS 2nd Dec 99 & STC 10 Feb 00 (Safety Information 1/00)
At the Safety & Training Committee (STC) meeting of the 10th February 2000 (and Rigger’s Committee meeting of the 2nd December 1999) it was agreed that: Any Tandem main canopy from a recognized manufacturer, may be used in any BPA accepted Tandem container provided that it is compatible and deemed to fit by a Parachute Rigger (PR) or higher. The following applies:
- No modifications are permitted (apart from minor rigging work to match the brake line to the toggle area) without approval from the Riggers Committee.
- A main canopy is deemed to consist of connector links, lines and canopy material.
- The rigger concerned must produce written documentation to the owner of the Tandem stating that the new set-up is compatible.
- This approval becomes the BPA authority for the change and must be produced on demand by the owner of the Tandem rig.
