In reply to:



Why do you jump with alti on S/L? Isn't there a 5sec rule in place. Check your canopy, if you cannot sort out the problem then chop?

Why wouldn't you jump with altimeter?? Seems important to me at least. From my experiences as a student and watching other students go through the SL program most can't count. They have so much other stuff going through the head when you tell them to count to 5, they maybe count to 2 or you say 5 and they count to 10. You give them a hard deck and without an altimeter that would be extremely challenging to a student. Sure you go XX amount of feet per sec but do you think they would be calculating that?

Just my opinion though
