Flying on equipment that has not received prior approval may result in cancellation of your course without refund. Please note that it is sometimes the combination or class of equipment that may be an issue e.g. a 70kg pilot on a wing that is classed at 80 to 120kg

Harness - Both the type and age of harness can have an impact on your flying safety and as a general rule a ‘pod’ type harness will not be acceptable.
Rescue parachute - this is an essential item and needs to be re-packed annually. This is your lifeline and Freeflight’s responsibility in this area will only be to ensure that you have a rescue parachute, it is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that it will work if needed.All other equipment is at your discretion but Freeflight reserves the right to stop tuition if safety advice is persistently ignored causing a danger to either yourself or others.
