Visual Inspection of Fabric
Upper Sail: All good
Lower Sail: All good
Inner Cells (major & minor ribs): All good
Leading Edge: Good
Trailing Edge: Good
Line Tabs: All good
Stitching: Good
Cells Cleaned of Debris: Yes

Porosity Tests
Upper sail: Reading has been taken on the upper sail, between 40 to 50 cm from the leading edge:
1st cell from center: 161.1, 5th following cell on the left side: 265.5, 5th following cell from this one on the left: 259.9,
5th following cell from this one on the left: 120.1. (Good)

Lower sail: Reading has been taken on the upper sail, about 30 cm from the leading edge:
1st cell from center: 320.5, 5th following cell on the left side: 272.2, 5th following cell from this one on the left: 301.1,
5th following cell from this one on the left: 243.9. (Good)

(*Reading on the porosity test is variable depending on temperature, altitude and humidity factors. Therefore, a porosity test has been taken
on the same fabric, but brand new, at the same time and place we did the test on this glider.
The reading on the same new fabric as on the one on upper sail, taken at the same time was 859.3.
With this specific fabric (Toray), the wing doesn't pass the test when the results are at about 15 and less.

Tear Resistance Test: 1,000+ (Very good)

Riser Inspection:
Left Risers: All are symmetric (Good)
Right Risers: All are symmetric (Good)
Quick Links: All good
Plastic Inserts: All good
Trims: Good
Buckles on Trims: Good
Magnet Clips: Good
Pulleys: Good
Toggles: Good
Stitches: Good









Line Inspection:
All damaged lines have been replaced:
6th Right top A from center;
2nd Right main C from center;
2nd Left 1st intermediate brake from center;
3rd Left 2nd intermediate brake from center;
4th Left 2nd intermediate brake from center;
Line Measurement: Symmetry has been corrected.
Main brake Lines Replaced: Yes (During a complete glider inspection, we systematically replace main
break lines for free on gliders that are 2 year old and more and that have not had main break lines replaced within the 2 last years).
Line Breakage Test Readings:
Side: Left
1st Main A from center: 154.8 kg (Good - for the Power Atlas Large, needs 60 kg to pass)
1st Intermediate A from center: 98.9 kg (Good - for the Power Atlas Large, needs 35 kg to pass)
1st Top A from center: 106.9 kg (Very good - for the for the Power Atlas Large, needs 20 kg to pass)

Work & Repair Done:
Complete inspection = $150.00
1 main line = $20.00
3 Intermediate lines (3 X $15) = $45.00
1 Top line = $15.00
5 line replacements on glider (5 X $5) = $25
2 Main brake line replacements = NC
Total = $250.00, plus shipping/handling *Invoice

Wing Summary & Recommendations:
This glider is now in good condition. Recheck in 100 hours or one year, whichever comes first.
