Re: [Throttlebender] A Solution for Current Canopy Collisions and Canopy Related Deaths/Injuries

I like a sexy custom colored canopy as much as anyone, but perhaps marketing bright, highly visible canopies would aid in the solution.

My first two canopies were bought used. Did about 200 jumps on a Spectre with black/blackberry (purple) and teal. That one wasn't too bad. Then I bought a Pilot that was black with red ribs. Putting 300+ jumps on that convinced me of one thing - I don't ever want to buy another dark canopy. That thing could go into stealth mode.

My current canopy was bought new and I picked orange and yellow so I'd be highly visible. Smile It's not all matchy-matchy with my gear, but those colors might just help keep me alive.
