6. TANDEM CLEARANCE (Cleared for all)
Mr Morris gave the meeting details of his request for Wings Unlimited canopies (main and reserves) to be used for Tandem in the UK in the Next system. He stated that the Next Tandem container and harness was currently accepted for use in the UK.
Mr Morris advised the Committee that these parachutes had full clearance from the German authorities with the appropriate TSO equivalents and had undergone strenuous testing.
Stefan Ertler the designer of the canopies and whose company manufactures them was in attendance at the meeting and was able to answer any questions from the Committee.
Following further discussion on this matter, it was proposed by Dave Morris and seconded by John Harding that the above request be accepted.
