Urgent CASA AD: Parachutes de France

Applicability: Parachutes de France Techno 240-B Reserve Parachute, part number R 01-240-B, all serial numbers.

Requirement: Use of the affected parachute is prohibited.

Note: EASA AD 2006-0105-E refers.

Compliance: From the effective date of this Directive.

This Airworthiness Directive becomes effective on 3 May 2006.

Background: The European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) has determined that the opening altitude loss/opening time of the Techno 240-B reserve parachute is not acceptable. Also, EASA has rejected the manufacturer’s proposed solution, Safety Bulletin BSC_06_002 dated 21.04.2006. As a consequence, the use of all Techno 240-B reserve parachutes is prohibited. This is considered to be an interim action until an acceptable solution is achieved.
