1. The RECCO detector emits a directional radar signal, like a torch beam

2. When the radar signal reaches the RECCO reflector, it is returned to the detector and points the rescuer in the direction of the pilot.

3. The closer the detector is to the reflector, the stronger the return signal, eventually allowing the rescuer to locate the pilot's location.



The under-seat rescue container is designed for a maximum volume of 5 litres and fits most emergency chutes. The Crest comes complete with its rescue handle attached to its deployment bag.



Woody Walley

Born out of a common passion for hang gliding between two Italian friends in the 1980s, Woody Valley is now one of the world's leading manufacturers of harnesses. The origin of the name Woody Valley is a touching story: Woody was the name of a dog that belonged to one of their pilot friends. He was a friendly dog, much loved by the whole group. Unfortunately Woody died in 1982, and his owner, Riccardo Segata, buried him in a small valley, which later became one of their favourite flying sites, and which he romantically renamed "Woody Valley". Soon the whole group started calling the place 'Woody Valley'. In the same period, the hang-gliding club "Woody Valley" was founded, and it later became one of the biggest and most famous free flying clubs in Italy.
