On April 27, Strong Enterprises issued a service bulletin mandating inspection of the 3-ring attachment on its six-gore tandem drogues (PN 480026) manufactured between June 22, 2020, and February 2, 2021. The last three digits of these drogues’ serial numbers are between 625 and 714. Affected Drogues are subject to excessive wear to the stitching junction at the 3-ring end of the drogue bridle. The photos show a drogue that was removed from service after approximately 200 jumps.

All affected drogues must be grounded until inspected. After inspection, the drogues may continue to be used if they do not show excessive wear; however, they must be inspected after every jump or removed from service and returned to Strong for repair. The full service bulletin is available here.
