Friday Freakout: Bad Break-Off Leads to Near Canopy Collision

Posted by Andrew R.

During a rookie 3-way scramble competition, one of the jumpers doesn’t track away at break-off and deploys under the camera flyer who had planned on pulling in place. Combine the lack of separation with an off-heading opening and you have yourself a near collision.

If you’re a camera flyer on a skydive with rookie jumpers, you might not get the separation you were expecting if they don’t track far enough or if they pull high at break-off. Just some food for thought.
