English text for the FAI CCC measurement video
Video 1: Wing Span and Trailing Edge
Wing Span and Trailing Edge
Control of the wing according to the CCC norm
Wing Span and ½ trailing edge
Before beginning measurement, download the Excel spreadsheet for the wing.
The files for CCC certified paragliders are available on the FAI website.
Complete the Name of the pilot, wing serial number and date.
Find a rigid fixing point in the ground to attach the wing to so you can apply tension (a door, wall etc…)
Connect the mole-grips and target
Put the mole-grips on the wing in a good position (taking care to protect the sailcloth).
Measure the length (X mm) between the target and the attachment point ->”tare”
Put the dynamometer in place and apply the specified tension.
Take the measurement with the laser focussed on the target.
NOTICE: For the trailing edge it is crucial to follow the required procedure. A precise measurement of the trailing edge is required, from the centre to the tip following the mylar trailing edge band. If you do not follow the required procedure you risk damaging the sail (deforming it diagonally), and the final measurements will not be correct).
Change the attachment point, alwas on the reinforcement of the trailing edge.
Fix the mole-grip just behind the centre of the wing.
Centre of the Wing
Take the measurement using the laser, from the centre of the sail to the tip where the target is positioned.
Open the second page of the Excel spreadsheet, and verify: “Canopy Dimension Verification”
The cells in Violet correspond with the data from the manufacturer
Change only the blue cells, with the tare if necessary
The results will appear highlighted in colour:- Green; OK/ Red; Out of tolerance with CCC

Film 2 Risers


Control of the wing according to the CCC norm
Measuring the Risers
Before beginning the measurements download the corresponding Excel spreadsheet.
The files for CCC certified paragliders are available from the FAI website.
Complete the name of the pilot, serial number of the wing and the date.
Position the riser on a plate marked with a grid of measurements from the attachment point
Measurement axes
Connect each riser to a tensioning system
Apply tension to the risers
Measure the length of each riser
NOTICE; Take the measurement to the inside of the maillons, where they take the load from the lines.
Put the risers into the “accelerated” position, as far as it will go until the limiters are fully engaged.
Measure the length of each riser as before.
Open the third sheet of the Excel spreadsheet and verify: “Risers”
The cells in violet correspond to the manufacturers data.
Change only the blue cells to neutral and accelerated base positions
The results appear in colour: Green: OK/ - Red; Outside CCC tolerances.

Film 3: Wing and Attachment Points


Control of the wing according to the CCC norm
Before beginning the measurements download the corresponding Excel spreadsheet.
The files for CCC certified paragliders are available from the FAI website.
Complete the name of the pilot, serial number of the wing and the date.
To verify the attachment point positions, it is necessary to scrupulously check the measurements set out in the Excel spreadsheet for the wing being measured: Sheet No 2 “Wing and attachment points”.
Find a rigid fixing point in the ground to attach the wing to so you can apply tension (a door, wall etc…)
Put the mole-grips and target on the wing trailing edge in a good position on the rib to be measured, facing forwards along the rib towards the leading edge (taking care to protect the sailcloth).
Connect the other mole grips on the rib at the leading edge.
Connect the dynamometer and apply the required tension.
Take the 3 primary measurements:

“Chord X”

“Top inlet X”

“Bottom inlet X”


Change the position of the mole-grips and apply the required tension again.
Take the required measurements of the attachment points (A1/AA1/B1/C1) in the same manner, always taking the measurement to the rear side of the attachment point.
Rear side of the attachment point
Find the next rib to measure (referring to the spreadsheet) and repeat the measurements
Open the second sheet of the Excel spreadsheet and verify: “Wing and attachment point”
The cells in violet correspond to the manufacturers data.
Change only the blue cells to neutral and accelerated base positions
The results appear in colour: Green: OK/ - Red; Outside CCC tolerances.

Film 4 Attack angle and arc


Before beginning the measurements download the corresponding Excel spreadsheet.
The files for CCC certified paragliders are available from the FAI website.
Complete the name of the pilot, serial number of the wing and the date.
Fix the measurement system for tensioning the lines on a table.

Mass 5kg
Slider


Target
Connect the riser
Tension the riser
Apply the mass
Take the measurements along each line applying sufficient tension to lift the 5kg mass
The measurements are taken to the bottom surface of the sail at each attachment point.

Open the third sheet of the Excel spreadsheet and verify: “Attack angle and arc”


The cells in violet correspond to the manufacturers data.
Change only the blue cells to neutral and accelerated base positions
The results appear in colour: Green: OK/ - Red; Outside CCC tolerances.
