Turning the brakes

For example, it was previously noted that the cornering angle of a dome can be changed using front free ends. As in the example with the sled, pulling up both front free ends when approaching in a straight line can be compared to descending from a steeper mountain. Vertical speed increases. Higher speeds should create greater lift. However, there is a danger of dragging the front free ends – this will lead to a deformation of the wing profile and a decrease in its effectiveness. In this case, you get the effect of “spoiled profile” – your actions led to the fact that a normally working wing stops working. Continue reading

Tips for beginners – low turn

Starting from the very first jumps, skydivers are taught that a low turn is one of the main causes of accidents in parachuting. When turning, the vertical speed increases, and when it leaves it, it becomes horizontal. You need to be very careful in managing the energy of the turn, in order to avoid a collision with the ground. It does not matter if the turn was due to improvisation or a pre-planned maneuver, if contact with the surface occurs before the dome returns to normal, it can lead to serious injury or death.
