PARACHUTING
Parachuting requires the skills of an athlete to perform free-fall with various acrobatic elements, controlled descent and precise smooth landing. It is already far in the past when the parachuter's…

Monitoring the air situation becomes

Turns greater than 90 degrees carry an unacceptable degree of risk to other skydivers. Monitoring the air situation becomes very difficult if you deviate from the generally accepted approach pattern. It is equally important that it becomes very difficult for other road users to watch you! Passing in the wind over the platform and turning 180 degrees not only dramatically change the vertical and horizontal components of speed, but also violate the scheme to which others are accustomed. In addition, a turn of more than 90 degrees does not add significant additional speed, but it significantly increases the likelihood of error, and not only from the hunt turn performer. Among other paratroopers in the air there may be people who do not have enough experience to compensate for getting into a wake. Someone might get scared and start a maneuver of evading an undisciplined pilot. The same safety rules apply to people on earth. Among casual viewers there may be, for example, people with physical disabilities, or simply people who do not understand how fast parachutes fly. Yes, and few skydivers after landing like to hear the whistle of the microline lines behind their backs and wonder if they will become another casualty.

Speed ​​is our friend, and flying under the dome without acceleration by the front free ends can be compared to driving a car no higher than 2nd speed. But we must always remember that almost all the forces of physics on which our flight depends are proportional to the square of the speed. The energy accumulated in flight means that fast domes are not inclined to forgive errors in the way that the domes can do more slowly. In addition, at high speed, the calculation and decision-making remains much less time. Piloting of fast domes is the lot of those who can think far ahead and act decisively in conditions of time pressure. This is very important, because people are being crippled due to intentionally low reversals, as well as due to errors in the control of the dome. Pilots who tend to react too slowly or too quickly to an unforeseen situation need quieter domes.
