Gin Gliders Important Safety Notice! Genie Race 3 harness
It has recently been reported that the main rescue bridle failed at the shoulder connection points following a parachute deployment on the Genie Race3 harness, says Gin Gliders.
Gin followed up with a close investigation, which revealed that the connection point may have already been weakened by a previous reserve deployment. Further tests on other Genie Race3 harnesses have concluded that the main rescue bridle connection exceeds the minimum certification standards. Tests on the shorter front rescue bridle connection have demonstrated that it is ok to exceed 2000kg.
Gin Gliders requests that any pilots having previously deployed their rescue parachute should re-check their rescue bridle connection points prior to their next flight.
