Super Preflights and Parachutes Repacks

While the flying at Lookout Mountain is still beautiful (you should see the colors!) , the work load in our shop and sew shop tends to quiet down this time of year. That means this is an awesome time to get your glider super pre flighted or to get your parachute repacked. Same great workmanship, but a quicker turn around time. According to glider manufacturers, it is recommended that your glider has an annual inspection each year (hence the name). We call this our Super Preflight. The Super Preflight includes removing the sail from the airframe, thoroughly inspecting the airframe, sail, rigging, hardware and ribs, an estimate of any additional repairs (if any are needed), reshaping the ribs to match the template (if needed), and reassembly of the glider. You can also get a parachute repack.Parachute manufacturer recommends getting your parachute repacked every six months. Please give us a call with any questions or stop by the pro shop to place a work order. 706-398-3541
