Safety notice: Yeti Cross rescue parachute

Routine quality checks have revealed a potential problem with the packing of a Yeti Cross rescue parachute. Untidy line packing was found, which may affect efficient deployment.

As a precaution, Gin Gliders recommend that any Yeti Cross reserves which have not yet been repacked, and with manufacturing dates between July 2016 and February 2017, should be checked by an authorised distributor prior to the next flight.

Any pilots who are potentially affected should first contact the Gin Gliders distributor in their country. The distributor will advise on affected serial numbers and on any following steps. A list of distributors can be found here:

Please note that this safety notice does not apply to Yeti Cross rescues manufactured outside these dates, or to any other rescue models.
