How do you know when you paraglider is ready for retirement?
Our wing takes care of us, but do we actually take the time to take care of it in return, and how do you know when it’s time to let her go or hang on?
UV exposure, dirt, moisture and time in flight are just a few examples of how a wing is stressed and can wear overtime. There is only so much that we can inspect visually. Do yourself a favor once a year and have a professional repair facility inspect your glider. Here is a short list of what they will test and look for during the inspection:
- Risers for fraying or wear on the webbing
- Cloth for any tears, punctures and porosity
- Lines for sheath damage, severed, kinked, stretched or shrunk in length
Depending on the brand of paraglider you own, get in touch with your local or favorite repair facility today.. well okay, maybe after this weekend’s flying 😉
As always, if you have any question or need help finding a reputable repair facility, give us a call.
