Glider check in accordance with NZHGPA OPMF36
Warrants are required to be renewed every 12 months in NZ
It is a Civil Aviation Authority offense to not have a valid warrant and carries a $1000 penalty
This check is performed with a porosity meter on the leading edge of the glider.
Mimimum requirement is 60 seconds porosity.
As your glider becomes more porous it becomes less safe due to air passing through the material, therefore the glider will become less stable, more prone to collapse, slower to reinflate from collapse.
Risers checked and O rings replaced where required.
Lines checked for kinks, unevenness, fraying, and sheath integrity. Attachment points checked using 20kg electronic device.
Cloth checked for wear, holes, and rip test performed.
Drop gliders to: Fitco gym, 135 Thirteenth Avenue, Tauranga South.
Gliders can be collected from this address once the warrant is complete.
