Re: [ltdiver] Hard opening with prosthetic shoulder joint

im new-and NEVER had a HARDer opening the base canopies with no sider n 42 inch pilot chute
BUT we got an instructor whose shoulder is permanently in a brace-type-thing because he hung from the wing strut dispatching students-and had a 'hard' sudden fall off it--not even a hard opening...

this stuff seems possible at several moments.

i've seen a
'bumb' to someones chest (Chris Colwell of Deland) end up in C4/C5 paralysis=while 270 @ 400f and a 'bounce' of several earth hits-turn into a torn jean....


so-
think of ALL the risks,
like any skydiver...
then ADD your personal ones...
and see what your total comes to...
weight it to what your willing to risk...

and do accordingly
