Re: [nigel99] How often does line twist happen in student jumps

In reply to:
But basically it is your canopy size in square feet divided by your exit weight (you plus equipment and clothing) in pounds. So a 200 square foot canopy with a person who weighs 220 pounds is about 1.1:1 wing loading.


That would be exit weight in pounds per canopy size in sq.ft.

220 lbs divided by 200 sq ft. = 1.1
