Wink

What is the current speed record under canopy during final approach. ?
At the Para-Performance website there are only seconds (through the course). I wonder if anybody could tell how quick they are? Has somebody tried polica-radars. At least in Finland we use radars..

thanks

tomppa

Ask Derek (hooknswoop) about this one. He's had quite a quick speed under canopy

Over here Rgoper just recalled a 98MPH measurement with a laser by hooknswoop.

I guess that was done with the VX 69

I wonder what kinda speeds Luis Cani had on his VX 46

93 mph in the dive, 78mph horzontal, w/ 10 jumps on my VX-60. That canopy is only good for going really, really fast.

Derek is currently loading it at 3.1:1, he is about 180 out the door. Now if he would let me jump it I would only be loading it at 2:1......come on pookie bear what do you say, can I jump it. Tongue

FYI.....we live in Colorado and jump at 5000MSL or higher depending on the DZ.
