>Also, see if you can find a copy of "The Parachute and it's Pilot" by Brian Germain. All these ideas and more are covered brilliantly in that book. <
Thanks for the input. Yes, I have that book and have started over for the second reading of it. I flew model airplanes enough to understand the basics of what we are trying to do. But many aspects of canopy flying much different and every canopy landing is a "dead stick" landing. So, there is much to learn.
