How can I lift a 38kg hang-glider wing on to my van's roof-rack (without help) without breaking my back? Answered
Hi, I fly a microlight, the trike of which fits nicely in my van (see link). The wing folds into a sausage shaped, zip-up bag, which can be carried on a roof-rack made by bolting a ladder to the roof of the van....but getting it up there is an issue. I can get help from a neighbour when I set out, but I am on my own at the airfield, when it comes to getting the wing down....and later putting it back up.
I have wondered about a pulley system, a stepped system, a winch, etc
anyone got any suggestions?
all help very much appreciated
