The next step is to control the

The next step is to control the landing area. By this I mean that even at a considerable height you must recognize all possible participants in the air traffic, determine the direction of the turns and the approach, take into account the obstacles and calculate alternative options for action. Personally, I like to approach the area of ​​the landing site along a long straight line, after which there should be a turn of 90 degrees for landing – this allows us to consider it well. If the terrain allows and the situation requires, I can easily give up landing on the main site and go to the spare. Never make S-turns and spirals if there is someone other than you in the air.

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.

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.
