RIGGERS 8th Oct 98
8. CLARIFICATION OF TANDEM MODIFICATIONS (Cleared for All)
Allan Hewitt advised the Committee that although the Parachutes de France Atom was cleared as a standard system, the Committee had not officially accepted the secondary handle on the Atom as Riggers had not seen the chest mounted drogue release system at that time, and this had never been brought back to the Committee. It was therefore proposed by Pete Sizer and seconded by John Harding, that the secondary handle on the Parachute de France Atom be accepted for use.
12. A.O.B. (Cleared for All)
A letter had been received from Pete Sizer, which was circulated to those present requesting to put a PD360 reserve into a Tandem Atom container.
Following discussion on this item, it was proposed by Allan Hewitt and seconded by Rick Boardman that the above modification be accepted for use subject to it being checked by Pete Sizer and an independent Advanced Rigger before use. This would need to be ratified at the next Riggers Committee. It was also noted that no one else may put a PD360 reserve in an Atom container until it had been ratified.
Carried unanimously, but see RIGGERS 18th Feb 99
