Re: [JackC1] What's the proper exit order?

Since (I am inferring to make a point that )you are disregarding the point that horizontal separation at opening time is primary....

I'm going to let you answer that question by offering you two scenarios:

you are in freefall and 200 feet away from impacting a deploying canopy, what do you do Johnny? what do you do? (and how much time do you have to make that decision - and, are you good enough to execute that decision)

vs

you are under canopy quite a bit after opening and pointing directly at another open canopy 200 feet away - (how much time do you have to make a decision?, and are you good enough to make eye contact with the other pilot, smile, wave, and gently turn your canopy away from him)



let me know what you think

(I might have made the point a bit obvious, but it's not obvious to some jumpers)



edit: I'd give you a lot more credence in the discussion if, in the scenario with the freeflyers out first, you have a longer delay between groups to account for drift. 10s for belly first, 20s for headdown first

I consider "freefly" to be any orientation, including back and belly - semantics....
