I’ve had my glider for nearly 5 years now and after transporting it to Lanzarote and back, I was keen to get the sail off for a thorough inspection. Time and my personal experience are always a compromise and the fact that I prefer a set of independent eyes to look over my glider meant I’d once again use John Barratt from South Downs Hang Gliding for a strip down service. This was evidently a wise choice as John quickly spotted that I had incorrectly attached the sail to the airframe upon return from Lanzarote. Fortunately, I had made the same mistake on both sides of the glider, so the overall symmetry was the same and I hadn’t noticed it in my limited flights on the glider since.
The good news is the glider is stll in top notch condition and no damage from my recent crash and trip to Lanzarote. Roll on the 2019 flying season!
