1. MINUTES AND MATTERS ARISING FROM THE RIGGERS MEETING OF THE 1 FEBRUARY 2007

The Chairman of STC advised those present that Bill Sharp also had asked the Committee for a number of clarifications from previous meetings:

  1. Bill had asked for clarification on an equipment clearance issue from the Riggers Committee Meeting of the 23 November 06. At this meeting the Committee had accepted a modification to the Performance Variable TD400 Tandem Parachute system.

    Bill had asked that in order for the accuracy of the BPA Approved Tandem Modification Website, for the Committee to confirm that the main and reserve combination presented with this Tandem container, was still as published in the original Form 258 (Contrail 390 main, Quick 400 reserve). This information was required so that any modifications to this original setup could be accurately recorded for the future.

    The Committee was advised that the above combination of equipment as quoted by Bill Sharp was correct.
