The Parachute Industry Association (check out the new website!) has started the “Rigging Road Show, A Workshop for Parachute Riggers” with the goal of reaching more FAA Certificated riggers with factory based education. PIA member companies will be participating in the first event to be held on February 19-20, 2016 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
These seminars will be held semi-annually, in conjunction with the regular PIA meetings. At the first event, attendees will receive education on reserve packing of several different systems and line set replacements (relines). Subsequent events will offer similar seminars and education. The only cost to attendees will be their travel and lodging – and whatever happens at the bar.
More information can be found on the PIA Rigger Roadshow Facebook Event page.
