Friday Freakout: High-Speed Premature Parachute Opening

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-friendfly gear, such as a freefly-pud on your pilot chute and a bungee cord connected to your legs straps to ensure you don’t fall out of your harness, as well as a tight BOC on your container.
