RESERVE REPACK

The club endeavours to put on a parachute repack session once per year, usually in February, free for members to attend.  It allows you to test deploy your reserve, to gain familiarity with the process in case you ever need it during flight, as well as checking for any problems.  The repack is supervised by a qualified BHPA reserve re-packer.
