Re: [Levin] HELP ON CANOPY CONTROL-MY LANDINGS SUCK
butt BASE jumpers do not jumps canopies with 800-1100 jumps on them that have no landing left in them. this I know. we also have canopies designed with extra brake lines simply to assist in shutting them down. BASE and skydiving are not the same, please quit trying to compare them. also people who are in BASE have or should have exceptional and above average canopy piloting and landing/flaring skills. you are comparing apples to oranges. everyone should solicit advice and do exactly what she has done which is digest it and ask a qualified coach at her dz to answer all the wonderful questions that she has.
