Up to now, we have
real recorded Life Savings.
Having reached the opening altitude I could not reach the opener of the main canopy, and I was losing height quickly. Finally I could open the main canopy, but it enwinded to my leg.
A high-speed emergency situation has developed, which has been solved by vigil, because it has opened the reserve canopy, thus saving my life.
becomse unstable below 4300ft and no pull.
Action d'ouverture à 1000m mais voile principale restée bloquée dans le POD.Vigil active avant la procédure de secour.
The student didn't have time to pull the handle after changing position.
Could'nt find pilot chute nor reserve handle.
Low exit (Hop & Pop) and no action to open the vanopy manually.
Thing is TI was not able to use reserve handle because it stuck in the pocket.
Completely new rig., so velcro is kinda strong.
Problem after exit and started spiraling. Failed to catch him. Thanks Vigil, everything finished well!
On a DEMO into an open field.
Exit altitude 5500AGL pulled at 3500 no response from my main so I reached again could not find my throw out. Spent to much time trying to get my main out,
thinking I had a partial main malfunction I pulled my cut A way. I must have been in a head down position when the AAD fired. The reserve came out clean but
my right side riser was still attached and the left side riser was hooked to my left foot on my smoke bracket. I was in a stable position until my main started to
inflate and put me in a left spin until I hit the ground.
Again I am 100% convinced that your Vigil saved my life
Two way wingsuit jump. Uneventful until break off and when I reached for pilot chute I lost control and went into a flat spin. Could not regain control and could not
reach my pilot chute. I knew I was getting close to my hard deck and tried to pull my reserve handle but due to velocity of spin and suit being fully inflated I was
also incapable. My hard deck rang in my ears and I was still on my back in a spin, last ditch attempt at my reserve handle and I successfully pulled it. I didn't know
my AAD fired until I got back to the dropzone and saw the knife cut the cord. I have no idea what came first, the knife cut or the handle cut, but needless to say I'm
very glad to have had a AAD!
