Thread: Aladin X Air

    Aladin X Air

    I was just learning to dive when this came out: http://www.undercurrent.org/UCnow/di...Air200304.html. Apparently the 1995 Aladin X Air was recalled in 2003. The story is that the guys at Uwatec spent a huge effort covering this up for years. I'd never heard about this before today. Anyone else aware of this?

    I don't own an Aladin X Air but it makes me wonder if this happened once, what is to stop it from happening again. I've read the stories behind people who got bent following the Aladin X Air and they push the limits more than I THINK I would but I'm doing things today I remember thinking I'd never do, e.g. drift diving in the St. Lawrence River.

    What is to say I wouldn't trust my computer to tell me when it was safe to fly or if I have a few more minutes before I go into deco.

    When I got my first computer I used tables and keep the computer as a back up. I'd check the computer to see that it was close to what the tables were giving me. I'm on a second computer now but I trust it to work and never compared it to my tables. After reading the story of the Aladin X Air I'm thinking I'll use my tables with my computer for a while just to confirm it is giving me accurate readings.
