Should untrained civilians jump out of high rise buildings with parachutes?
My name is Eric. I am not a skydiver - although hope to try it some day. I am doing research on non-conventional uses of parachutes, so I thought that I would ask the pros here at Dropzone.
My questions are: would you recommend that a person caught in a high rise fire use a parachute with a static line to escape the building if one was available? Is he likely to survive without prior training?
