Hang Gliders: about maintenance and repairs


Icaro 2000 recommends compliance with the timescale of programmed maintenance as detailed in the user manual. In addition, the manufacturer would like to remind you that an additional check may be necessary every time that an unusual event (heavy landing, unsuitable transport conditions, etc.) gives rise to doubts regarding the hang glider’s airworthiness. Programmed maintenance and checks must be performed only by qualified staff, using exclusively original Icaro 2000 spare parts.

In this regard, Icaro 2000 can perform the maintenance operations on a hang glider in the space of one day, by appointment.

Icaro 2000 also reminds you that hang glider sails also require periodical substitution. Over the years, repeated folding and exposure to sunlight causes a gradual deterioration in physical strength and shape, affecting the parameters of maximum admissible loading, the wing’s aerodynamic behaviour and therefore the hang glider’s stability. This process of ageing affects all types of sail, though to different degrees.
