Rescue Installation and Check of Compatibility

The Genie Lite is compatible with GIN rescue parachutes. Other manufacturer’s rescues may be used
as well.
Every first installation of a rescue system into the harness (that means every new combination of
harness and rescue system) must be checked for compatibility by a qualified paragliding professional.
Prior to the installation, you should also ensure that you have the necessary materials to complete
the procedure, for example, suitable maillons and thread.
Rescue parachutes should be repacked at least every 6 Months; so installing your rescue in a new
harness may also provide a good opportunity for a repack.
A compatibility check always must be executed by the pilot itself who will fly with the harness. The
pilot must seat in the harness which is hanging in a simulator and release the rescue from the rescue
container to be sure this is possible in an emergency situation. A compatibility check (check if the
rescue parachute can be released from the integrated container of a harness) must be executed after
each repacking of the rescue parachute.
