Check parachute before jumping

No one has canceled the briefing before the jump, so to be sure of your own safety, you need to check all the equipment and the parachute.

A preflight check includes a visual inspection, a manual check on the availability of all parachute elements and a check on the performance of the system. Performing all the rules of verification, the parachutist significantly reduces the risk of unforeseen situations that threaten his health and life, as well as the risk of failures in the parachute system.

Before each jump the parachute should do the following:

1. Inspect the parachute before laying, it makes the parachutist. To do this, the parachute must be installed “in the goats” and mounted on it a sling knife or bayonet. Then check the dome of the lumen: all lines and the fabric should be intact and have no foreign spots. Slings need to be folded together and pulled to see their integrity and strength.

2. Carefully inspect the dome cover for damage. It should not have any holes, scuffs and stains.

3. Check the need and rubber sops. They should also not have any damage on textile parts and fixtures.

4. Do not forget to check your bag for packing parachute. If it is whole and has no defects – you can safely use it.

5. You need to pay attention to the safety of the seal and the cord on the parachute bag.

6. Inspect the upper spare wheel valve and make sure that the pin is inserted into the loop.

Before jumping the 2nd verification procedure:
– Once again, carefully check the release cushion and the reserve parachute drive. They should be located in their nests and be easily accessible.

– The chest girth must be correctly passed through the buckle and fastened.

– Make sure that the leg girths are in the correct position.

That’s all – the parachute is ready to go. And finally: do not forget about safety and make yourself a good habit to always carry out a thorough preflight inspection of the parachute before each jump.

Trying yourself in this kind of extreme sports should first learn how to control the movement to change the position of the body during the jump and flight speed. Also, for freefly training, special equipment is needed, which is different from the equipment of an ordinary skydiver.

For high-speed jumps, the exhaust parachute and the jellyfish are located in separate compartments, and the valve, which opens the parachute, is above the string. This is done specifically to reduce the likelihood of a parachute opening prematurely.

In addition, it is necessary to have special clothes, a helmet and goggles, which should be comfortable and tightly fixed, as well as the presence of an altimeter with a loud alarm system.
