Parachute cover attachment

Recommended Posts

Lost our parachute cover in flight this weekend. I have tried several times to retape the double-sided tape underneath as well as the white sealing tape on top. Alas, the adhesives are not sufficient under the hot summer sun and the hangar temperatures up to 115 degrees. Anyone know of better tape that is less susceptible to heat?

Tesa transfer tape from Wings and Wheels.  https://wingsandwheels.com/tapes-seals/tesa-transfer-tape.html

But the most important tape is the top seal.  It must be fresh tape, not old.  Use Bowlus maxi seal tape also from Wings and Wheels.  Retape at least once a year when you do the annual inspection when the cover is removed to inspect the parachute.
