Re: [BillyVance] AAD for CReW

In reply to:
Just remember, the smaller the canopies/higher the wingloading, the faster the downplane will go. I've taken downplanes with a close friend down to 200-300 feet under Triathlon 135-150's loaded around 1.2. I'd be scared to try that under pocket rockets loaded over 2.0.

Using my Tri 150 (WL 1.5) I have downplanes with average speeds of 50-57mph per my Altitrack. When I pitch out the door to do CRW it is usually when we do the downplane that the Altitrack finally thinks I have jumped... :)

Side note: I jump without an AAD
