"Round table" at lake Starnberger See

On Tuesday 18th of November the 4th Meeting of „The Round Table“ took place at lake Starnberger See in Germany. The participants agreed about the future standards for paraglider test flights and paraglider load tests.

The „Round Table“ is an institution put in charge by the German Civil Aviation Authority, Luftfahrt Bundesamt, to negotiate about the airworthiness standards which should be applied in Germany (LTF). The Round Table members unanimously decided to ask the Luftfahrtbundesamt to change the LTF as follows: The European standards for paraglider flight tests EN-926/2 and paraglider load tests EN-926/1 will be the basis for testing also for the German LTF (airworthiness standards).
