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.

The first step in the development

I hope that my comments above will to understand what is happening during the turn. In short, both types of turns lead to an increase in vertical and horizontal speed, but for a planned maneuver, turning with front free ends is generally preferable as leaving a larger “gap” in case of calculation errors or a sudden change in the situation. Unfortunately, the majority of unplanned, “panic” turns are made by just the brake calipers, which led to a considerable number of accidents. Regardless of whether a turn is made at the free ends or brake lines, whether it is planned or not – if the withdrawal is not completed before the meeting with the land, the consequences may be dire.
