The SHPF have run the ‘Ratho Repack’ event at the EICA, Ratho, Edinburgh, since 2005. Until 2016, Hang Glider and Paraglider pilots could dynamically deploy their reserve parachutes on the world class zip line before repacking them in one of the large function rooms within the complex.
Development of the climbing facilities at the EICA means that we can no longer set up the zip line there. We are seeking an alternative venue that can accommodate a zip line. If you have any suggestions please contact the committee by email at: committee AT shpf.co.uk.
Deployment videos from 2014, 2015 and 2016 are available online.
