Real life test

Marc Boyer, recognized instructor and tester at the FFVL has triggered the rescue parachute during an autorotation. Successful test and very fast opening in the most negative configuration of an autorotation (antiphonal rotation). In less than a second after the hand on the handle, the paraglider pilot is suspended from his parachute. This time would probably be reduced with a square parachute.

Thanks to Marc for getting into the water and to K2 Paragliding for taking the picture.

Test on zip line

To celebrate the 100th ejection (without any failure), paragliding.tech went to the educational zip line developed by STIV’AIR in Cluny. A great educational tool to discover.

It opened in less than two seconds from the moment the flight incident occurred, despite the surprise of the pilot who discovered the device. The test shows that the device can bring a clear gain of safety at low altitude.

Innovation Award: ICARE Cup 2019

On four nominees, the jury chose to focus on safety voting for the Ejector sky.
What the jury says : “Attempts to innovate around the spare launch for paragliders have been numerous in the past. Indeed, in the event of an incident in flight, in normal times, the parachute sometimes puts several seconds before opening up, or opens badly, which causes many accidents.

The association of a pugnace inventor, Jean-Philippe Gallat, and a large paraglider brand, Sky Paragliders, has borne fruit and offers a very innovative, lightweight and easy-to-use product.

The Sky Ejector allows the Parapentist in difficulty to eject his rescue parachute with force in half a second thanks to a CO2 cartridge that triggers an airbag. The parachute is then propelled out of its housing and can be effective even at low altitude.
A real big step for the safety of practice! “
