Tandem harness Pilot

Pilot is a low-weight harness made for tandem paragliding pilots. Its unique combination of leg belts and seat board achieve great movement space for tandem pilots - on the ground as well as during flight. Many little details make it a first choice harness for distance flights as well as for commercial use.

Accordingly independence offers suitable passenger harnesses in its product range: Passenger, Kid's and Slope.

maximum seating comfort

The combination of leg loops and seat board distributes the pilot's weight evenly, maximizing seating comfort. At the same time, freedom of movement is increased, as the legs almost float above the seat board.

Optimal geometry

The overall geometry with the upright seating position allows for good visibility and an easy transition from walking to sitting.

practical details

Many details, such as the standard photo rod holder or the generous radio pocket, facilitate handling in practice.

Pilot is suitable for commercial tandem pilots as well as casual tandem pilots.

The combination of leg belts and seat board balances load equally. The seat board is wide enough to provide movement space for the legs. Thus the tandem pilot can easily move his/her legs to the side and find a comfortable seating position.

The integrated rescue container is centered on the back of the harness. At each side it has a channel carrying the connector line, which leads via shoulder strap towards the tandem spreader.

The container is optimised for combination with Annular EVO 30, which is the model that fits best with low weight and small packed measure of Pilot. Yet the container is big enough to carry other common tandem rescue parachutes.

Yes. The deployment bag meets current LTF requirements, thus is compatible with all common rescue systems (annular and cruciform parachutes).
