real recorded Life Savings.
AFF student doing flips, got stuck on his back. Instructor tried to get to him twice. But falling fast and turning, spinning. Instructor pulled himself arround 1800. Student did finnally pull but pilot chute wrapped arround him. Then Vigil fired.
At some point very quickly he became unstable and started to turn uncontrollably and became a spin. The jumper became disorientated as the spin got faster. He did not attempt to open main nor reserve and Vigil fired.
Jumper did not pulled completely her hand deploy, re-tried but did not found it. lost track of time and the Vigil activated before she pulled teh reserve ripcord.
The instructor pulled the reserve handle, it was out, but the Vigil beat him to it.. His claim is his son was covering up the drogue release handle/s and he was coaching him longer than he should have to improve his body position.
Due to the fogging of the helmet lens there was lost of altitude control. Skydiver was in freefall till the Vigil activation. Main canopy was not deployed because he was trying to open the lens.
After earning instructor release on a Category C-1 AFF jump, the student started to spin. The instructors were unable to pull for the student, and the student made no attempt to pull for himself. The AAD fired the reserve, and the student landed safely in a field.
I had an unstable seatted exit that followed into rotations. The student had knees tucked in some kicking. Instructor tried correction and ended up throwing the drogue. But had a faster activation. Both canopies out, pulled them appart & cutaway main.
Libération et pas d'action sur la poignée de réserve et ceci confirme bien une vie sauvée.
Le parachutiste ne lache pas le hand deploy. le Vigil est plus rapide que sa procédure de secours.
Second jump of the year and first from a C 182. Could'nt stabilize and could'nt reach the handle. Opened when vigil fired and landed with both canopies. No injury.
