Tandem harness Pilot


Pilot has been designed for the special requirements of tandem paragliding. The combination of leg belts and seat board balances load equally and optimises seating comfort. At the same time the pilot gains free movement space, as his/her legs almost hover above the seat board. The whole geometry and an upright seating position achieve excellent sight and an ideal transition from running to seating.

Many well thought-out little details such as a fixture for a camera pole and its radio pocket make Pilot an ideal harness for tandem pilots.

For which purposes has Pilot been designed?

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

How can Pilot offer such great movement space and seating comfort?

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.

How is the recue system suspension laid out?

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.

Which rescue parachutes fit into the provided rescue container?

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.

Can I integrate my rescue parachute into the provided deployment bag with release handle?

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