- Check your maillons – don’t over-tighten them!
Paramania’s Pascal Campbell-Jones told XCmag.com that “since we posted the safety notice warning pilots about preflight checking their maillons, hundreds of people have watched the video on ‘How to check your maillons’ and written thanking us from all over the world for making them more aware about preflight checking.
“We are quite surprised by the lack of pilots pre-flight checking their equipment in our sport.”
Paramania’s website also several other useful technical videos on their site.
