Friday Freakout: High-Speed Premature Parachute Opening

Posted by Andrew R.

A premature opening is never a good thing, especially at high-speeds when you’re sit flying with a group of friends.

Luckily no other skydivers were directly above him when his main canopy deployed!

It’s hard to say exactly what caused this premie, but this should serve as yet another reminder to use freefly-friendly gear — a freefly pud on your pilot chute, a tight BOC on your container and a bungee cord on your legs straps so you don’t fall out of your harness.
