Student H&P's Can't Post

From the incidents forum:

Hop and pop accident in San Marcos, TX
.....His exit was unstable, reached and threw out his pilot chute which ended up on his back as he was rolling to his left. Level 14 coach jump. His leg went thru his lines causing the horseshoe mal function.

..... I believe that the amount of fabric from the two student canopys slowed him down just enough to have a chance of surviving.



So...what is the problem here?

The problem is instructors sending young jumpers out to do H&Ps without having first taught them, and made them practice, stable exits from altitude.

Yes, yes...you can use the old "anything can happen at anytime excuse" if you like. Use whatever excuse you like just get off your dead ass an teach them stable exits from altitude right from the get go...always BEFORE you send them out on the H&P.

You teach them the easiest to accomplish and make sure they can do it BEFORE the H&P.

How many of you doing AFF send them out on jump 8 or 9 or 10 or anywhere near that early? Ask yourself, "Why?"
