Winsor, I whole heartedly agree with you. This IS a big deal to pull low like that. It's not like Cypres is set to go off at 3K! If you have a Cypres save or two out your are in the basement pure and simple. There is no excuse for loss of altitude awareness and a highly critical review of the incident is mandated by a Cypres fire.
I'll second that! I think that winsor has it nailed. Perhaps remedial training would be a good suggestion. As to losing altitude awareness, we do have audibles and many of us fly with two of them. When the audible goes off...the skydive is over. Simple as that. I think other drop zones will soon be taking the same stance as Perris Valley.
