Safety and Technical Updates / Bulletins

You will find a list below of technical bulletins describing important updates that are available to be carried on Skylaunch winches. We will be adding new documents to this section periodically. The first document on the list describes all the updates available. Please check back regularly for information on updates that might affect your own winch.

April 2021 – Winch safety checks.

As we are now easing out of some Covid 19 restrictions (in the UK) and gliding can start again, most winches have not been used for many months.
For clubs in all countries please don’t forget to give your winch(es) a good check over including test firing the guillotines, as per your manuals or latest information.

There is an advice sheet in this section too: http://www.skylaunch.com/upgrades/CableGuillotineTesting.pdf
