Safety Recommendation 2019-06

Recommendation PREAMBLE:

In-flight loss of control, U-Turn GmbH-BLACKLIGHT M, Koliaki-Epidaurus, 23 April 2018, one (1) fatal injury.

In the course of the investigation, it was found that the certificate number shown on the paraglider’s signboard sewn on the wing was wrong. This problem was also found in the paraglider’s manual, in brochures presenting the paraglider’s flight characteristics as well as in advertising material of the manufacturer. The said problem could lead to a misunderstanding concerning the flight characteristics of this specific paraglider model.

For these reasons AAIASB recommends the following:

Safety Recommendation: 2019-06

Main Recommendation Text:

The manufacturer should examine ways in which to communicate the said problem, as well as any corrective action intended in this respect, to the gliding community and owners of this particular paraglider model.
