As most pilots are becoming increasingly aware, regular trim checking and adjustment is the most critical part of our glider servicing. Fed up with the limitations of using the big service centres with their slow turnarounds, I have developed a portable trim system for home or travel use. We now offer a while you wait, home visit, or drop off service for paraglider trimming in Crickhowell. I hope that this service will be of great benefit to local pilots, who will no longer have to post their gliders across the border with expensive carriage fees and long waiting lists. You can even be involved in the trimming to learn for yourself how to keep your wing in shape, and spread knowledge through the area and Welsh Clubs.
The cost of a full laser measure is £40. You can then opt to make adjustments yourself, or we can do them as a full re trim and remeasure with written report for £30.
After the retrim, you should notice significantly improved inflation behaviour as well as a more responsive wing, that flies better – the one that you used to fly when it was new!
You can email email@example.com for more information and booking in.
“777 confirmed that you did an excellent job of re-trimming my wing. I’ll pass the word around.” – Andrew, 777 King pilot.
“I think it handles much better, more progressive and smother motions” – Ben’s comments after flying his wing that had been ‘while you wait re-trimmed’.
