Re: two out main and reserve entanglment

>There's just no case for cutting away first

Except for the case of the student who is not quite dialed in. For example, they have 10-15 even 25 jumps. Now, they learned the difference between a PCIT and a Horseshoe and can usually demonstrate the proper EP's for each on the ground.

But, take that same student in a highly induced adrenaline state; 2500' and they've pulled. ALL they know is there is no parachute. What is their response going to be? How many believe they are really going to burn altitude trying to assess, "Which mal am I under?"

IMO doing the full proper EPs whether its a PCIT or Horseshoe will result in less assessment time and more action towards getting the reserve over your head.

The floor is yours, Gentlemen.
