Pre-flight check or die!

Also be extra careful with leg straps with a flight deck or a canoe (pg or hg) harness...

As we have seen here, a flight deck is enough to cause this problem, it is not limited to canoe harnesses. The mandatory pre-launch check which we all perform before each and every launch (!) will ensure this doesn't happen to one of us...

We have had two serious 'failure to clip-in' events (FIC-ups!) within the club in recent years, one pg and one hg. Let's not have any more.

In a similar vein, always complete the check by confirming that the airspace is clear, including behind you, before starting to launch.

Let's be careful out there.
