|About safety Revisions and reparations of hang gliders|
Icaro 2000 is constantly committed to giving its customers products of ever-increasing quality.
This means better performance, more enjoyment in flying, and greater safety.
Of course, the pilots’ attitude and behaviour are essential in ensuring safety.
For this reason, we encourage all owners of an Icaro 2000 hang glider to have their glider thoroughly checked and serviced regularly (at least once every two years).
This service can be requested from your Icaro 2000 dealer or directly from Icaro 2000.
The period of once every two years is sufficient when the hang glider has been used correctly. This means:
Icaro 2000 and its dealers can provide maintenance services for its customers in most countries of the world, and they can despatch spare parts anywhere. However, if the parts requested are for a hang glider over ten years old, Icaro 2000 prefers to examine the entire hang glider and replace parts if necessary using its own technicians, in order to ascertain the glider’s conformity with the latest standards of quality, therefore ensuring pilot safety. .
The standard revision includes: :
If we discover that extra parts have to be replaced with respect to the components replaced as part of the standard maintenance service, and their value exceeds € 50, we will contact the customer before completing the servicing operations.
At the end of the work, the customer will receive the maintenance service report detailing all the checks made.
Before performing a repair job, we will give the customer a detailed estimate.
If the hang glider is more than 2 years old and was last serviced more than 2 years ago, the glider will be serviced during the repair operations. In this case, the customer will pay just the price of the repairs, plus the parts that are replaced.
After extensive repairs, or if five years have elapsed from the preceding service, we recommend a flight test performed by one of our test pilots. The cost of this is € 85 (inclusive of VAT). Safety is priceless!
All maintenance and repair operations are performed by appointment.
After maintenance servicing, the customer is provided with a declaration of airworthiness for the hang glider, which includes a list of all the operations performed.
