Rescue essentials kit  65 €

Our kit is made up of carefully selected emergency equipment for paragliders to survive a collision with a tree, cable or other obstacle. It's important to remember that these incidents do not only happen to others! Even experienced pilots may find themselves in a situation where help is required. Developed with input from rescue professionals and IFMGA mountain guides, our essentials help prevent a bad situation from becoming much worse.

These tools are designed to assist the pilot with escaping entanglement, treating injuries and avoiding a serious secondary accident while waiting for help to arrive. Equipment is also included to assist in raising a rescuer's rope, a whistle to aid in signaling and a survival blanket to temporarily ward off hypothermia and/or protect against sun exposure.

Strongly recommended by the FFVL, PGHM and civil security in many countries. Free shipping with two or more kits. Volume discounts for clubs and schools.

- The Gerber GDC hook knife is capable of quickly and safely cutting lines and risers. Lifesaving potential in a small package, the stainless steel hook blade can be used to extricate yourself if you become entangled in your paraglider lines. Featuring a circular 6061 T6 aluminum handle with thumb grip, the knife locks into an integrated sheath when not in use. Blade specs: 5cm type 7Cr17 stainless steel. Weight: 15.4g.
- 180cm Dyneema® sling with a locking carabiner, used to secure yourself to the nearest solid branch or anchor point to prevent a more serious secondary fall. Made by Simond in Chamonix.
- A mini aluminum spool loaded with 30 meters of 0.3mm Dyneema® line, used to raise a rope from rescuers on the ground. We selected this line for its low elongation properties, light weight and a breaking strength of 120N. It's ideally suited as an ultra-compact yet strong and easily deployable emergency retrieval line.
- 2 x 7.5 cm square gauze pads and a 8cm x 4m elastic bandage.
- 2 x 3M Nexcare comfort bandages.
- An Aqua Marine Whistle, rated at 106 decibels. Essential if no other means of communication with rescuers is available. Approved to ISO 12402 standards.
- A 210 x 140cm survival blanket. This has multiple uses, including adding a few precious degrees of warmth, protection from direct sun, as a rain cover or as signaling mirror to assist helicopter crews in locating you from above.
