Crazy Close Call Canopy Collision #138

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

There are far too many “near misses” and canopy collision close calls being sent our way lately, I’m losing count.

This incident occurred on a team training jump after both jumpers had off-heading openings on converging paths. Sure, two off-heading openings flying towards each other might sound like a fluke or rare occurrence, but adding more horizontal separation at break-off (and more vertical separation if a camera flyer is pulling in place) is usually a good idea.
