A new paragliding reserve parachute system is currently in the works that uses a base jumping parachute as the reserve. The paragliding harness is equipped with a jettisoning system to automatically extract a Base Jumping parachute ( BASE ) after the main paragliding wing has been cutaway.
Acro Base System – Developped by Sup’Air with Raul Rodriguez and Jean-Noël Itzstein
