RIGGERS 6th Aug 09
A Student Parachutist Equipment Change Proposal Application Request had been received from Jason Thompson, a copy of which had been previously circulated. Jason had stated that PD manufactures a Sigma 395 for the civilian market. They also manufacture a Phoenix 400 for the military market, which was exactly the same canopy spec, the only difference being the name change to Phoenix. Jason had provided a spec for the 400, which had also been circulated in advance of the meeting.
Following some discussion on this request, it was pointed out by those present that this canopy did not require the Committee’s acceptance, as it already fulfilled the required criteria for Tandem main canopies.
