SHPF Emergency Parachute Repack 

Ratho Repack 2019 

The 2019 Ratho Repack will be held on Saturday the 2nd of February. This is your opportunity to check and repack your paragliding or hang-gliding emergency reserve with expert support. Richard Bungay of UK Airsports, a BHPA licensed parachute packer, will be on hand to demonstrate reserve repacking and provide assistance.

Richard Bungay and Patrick Holmes from UK airsports will also bring a selection of equipment for you to look at or buy, the sales will go through the Flying Fever Paragliding School to help support us in training new pilots in Scotland. The challenge of running a  Paragliding school in Scotland is helped by equipment sales   We really appreciate the support of the Scottish pilots in purchasing your equipment through us or another Scottish paragliding School.  Your support is necessary for the schools to be able to survive in Scotland.  Please contact me if you would like to look at a particular piece of equipment or to arrange a test flight when the weather improves.

The SHPF AGM will also be held as part of the same event.
