Reserve Pilot Chutes 101

Reserve Pilot Chutes 101

My mom is in town for Thanksgiving and I have already put her to work helping edit the December issue. Mike Gruwell wrote a review of Basik’s Seven container/harness; to help her understand some of the technicalities, we pulled out my rig and had a quick crash course on reserve parachute mechanics.

PD New Beginning

Incidentally, learning how my reserve works gave her a little more confidence in the odds of me surviving my next jump. I can highly recommend a gear tutorial for the parents/concerned family members ;)
