Wingsuiting at 4000ft i reached for my pilot chute, found it but couldn't pull it out (had several hard pulls before with new rig) Went back into stable flight position and tried to pull again until I got my 2000ft alarm. Grabbed my reserve handles and wanted to cutaway (out of habbit for emergency drills)
Released reserve handle cause I needed 2 hands for peeling off my cutaway pillow, went in stable position again for maybe 2sec or so waiting for skyhook that didn't work ofcourse :) reached again for reserve handle and pulled but found out later my Vigil just fired before my pull. Landed safely in the forest.
Jumper dislocated arm during freefall
Exit from the aircraft at an altitude of 4000 m, stable. Fell steadily. Made wave-off on 1200 m. Not found hackey handle of pilot chute. On 800 m I tried to pull reserve handle, but was looking for the reserve ring for long time and found it on 400 m and pulled it. But the Vigil was activated allready
A solo jumper decided not to open main because of unstable freefall and take a bad decision not to open the reserve by himself.
5th jump of day in wingsuit. Can't find the pilot chute of main. 5 trials i have cutaway (RSL was off) and trying to deploy reserve. But because of the oncoming flow to the wing, i can't reach a hand to the release.Vigil fired and deployed the reserve. With my immense gratitude.
2 way Skydive. track away but was unable to get his main pilot chute deployed. Attempting to use the reserve but stated that his suit was baggy and was grabbing his excess jumpduit close to the handle. Vigil AAD fired and landed in the field.
Student's training jump. Was unable to locate the pilot chute. Did not apply the emergency procedure.The opening of the reserve was accomplished by the Vigil. Landing without injuries.
The skydiver cutaway but did'nt find reserve handle. No RSL. Thank you Vigil!
Activation during wingsuit jump, the skydiver cutaway after lot of line twists but didn't find reserve handle...
Exit at 1200. 4-5 sec after opened the canopy but container didn't open. pilot chute pulling and no reserve opening. Vigil WORKED! Reserve opening and good landing.
