Two canopy out - Multiple locations Can't Post

Its been floating around Facebook for a little while so it might as well be brought up here that in the last 2 months there have been multiple reported instances of two canopy out situations arising from complications with Apache Wingsuits. The issue has been documented at least once on video that due to the placement of the handles now being inside the rig and needing modification to reach the handles at deployment this can result in an accidental pull of the reserve handle just at deployment. In one instance the canopies entered a downplane close to the ground.

This Apache suit style was originally designed for the BASE environment where there are no handles to pull and was later modified to try and get it to work in the skydiving environment. There were previous issues that a modification that was proposed to allow this suit to be used for skydiving had increased the pull force on the reserve handles to a level above TSO certification levels.

At least one West Coast DZ has now put out a ban on that particular style of wingsuit due to the issues that have been identified with it, all other wingsuits seem st still be allowed at this time at that DZ.
