Yes. Rigging Innovations has two different models. Standard and Sport. Both ram air parachutes the difference is the standard is sold larger per pilot weight and is somewhat neutered with longer brake lines. It will turn slower and not flare as strongly as a proper ram air. Less likely to stall it or turn hard into the ground with the longer brake lines. The sport uses standard skydiving ram air reserves and for that one they want specific training or experience. Take your pick, either one is light years ahead of a round.

Oh my... so glad everyone is all right. I encouraged one of my friends, Richard Starke, to fly with Dave the on theday before. You never know what's going to happen with our equipment or environment even though we have decades of experience.

I have one, Paratec Aviator.
You can fly it, but you don't need to.

One injured. Expected to be discharged for hospital today.
There are NO details.

Hope Dave is OK, looks like the landing wasn't optimal.

He's back at Nephi, rather shaken as one might imagine.

Thanks Frank, that's great news.
Walking?
More than likely he'll be asked to give a safety talk, which would be very interesting.

I fly with an Aviator P124 from Rigging Innovations
http://www.rigginginnovations.com/containers/p124.* This is an
emergency parachute.* IIRC I paid around $2,700 for it.* They
recommended training and I got some at the local jump club.* Having had
the Air Force training with round chutes and jumping with the
rectangular, I would never again consider wearing a round chute if a
rectangular is available.

Good luck for a quick recovery to Dave and passenger.

That really good news.

Eventually we'll learn what sequence of events made the chutes more attractive than the glider and why there were no InReach tracking points after 4:26 pm.

I am so glad to hear everyone is going to be ok. It is torture waiting to hear if this was structural failure, or an unrecoverable spin, or what.....
