Safety Recommendation 2019-07

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 paraglider manufacturer’s maintenance instructions for this particular model, as contained in its Manual, may possibly lead to misinterpretation in respect of the limit of flight hours following which the glider’s proper initial check is to be performed, given that two different values (300 h or 2 years and 150 h or 2 years) are stated for its initial maintenance check.

For these reasons AAIASB recommends the following:
