Paragliding Repairs and Maintainence
Paraglider Service maintenance.
Manufactures have varying service recommendations for each glider dependent of the materials used. - Check your gliders manual to see what tests are required.
A good service centre can repair damaged gliders, make up new lines and has a good stock supply of material.
Please note parachute riggers are not qualified to do repairs on paragliders.
As one pilot found out. The rigger did not use correct material and consequently botched job badly, it required further fixing. The pilot then sent it to "WA paragliding centre", who had a bigger job to fix up the botched riggers repair. I don't have to tell you that the repair then ended up costing much more. But the result from WA Paragliding was nothing less than amazing the pilot said.
After 2 years or 150 - 200 hrs you maybe required to replace lines. Certain lines must under go a line strength test which requires replacement when measuring the braking point eg. 80kg Make sure it is included as part of your maintenance service.
Not all gliders need trim tuning in the early stages of a gliders life. Quoted "by Nova" they should stay within the manufactures safety tolerance. Trim tuning is not maditory." Check your manual.
Reports coming from a couple of pilots who checked there new gliders line lengths, found a couple were the wrong length replacement was required.
Also twisted lines are not uncommon. This just confirms a new glider needs to be thoroughly inspected before flight.
Your glider has been trimmed and tested to optimal safety and maximum performance. Attempting to re-trim a glider faster is dangerous and changes a certified glider to being uncertified.
