4. EQUIPMENT MODIFICATION REQUEST – PETE SIZER. (Cleared for All)
A request has been circulated with the Agenda from Pete Sizer to use a Parachutes de France drogue system in the Tandem Vector System belonging to Paul Austin.
The Parachutes de France drogue assembly comes with twin cables in place of the curved pin, otherwise the dimensions of the drogue and bridle are very similar. The only modification would be to remove the yellow cable from the outer bridle that is used to close the Atom drogue pocket.
Pete Sizer has inspected this modification and supported it fully as a general clearance for Atom drogues to be used on Vector systems.
It was proposed by Pete Sizer and seconded by Pat Walters that the above modification be accepted.
