Seriously, who thought that shit was a good idea.... Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

That was a very fast drogue pitch.

I'd be curious to know how experienced this TM is. Not really impressed with this TBH.

The 'let's pitch the drogue before everything goes ape-shit' says it all...

*Refrains from giving famous Forrest Gump quote*

(Then again, if it was rewarded with an out of this world menage a trois, I'd be tempted)

From watching the exit, I would guess that this is not the first time he has done this "triple". I bet the first exit didn't go as well. Think how a cutaway, with this group, might go.....especially with no rsl.......arms and legs everywhere......Unsure

Re: [Liemberg] Tandem jump with two passengers: video [In reply to] Can't Post

that is an eye opener indeed. but to be honest i can not see this catching on.i think its a crazy idea and absolute madness.
pitching the drogue the moment you get out the door is your best hope. cant imagine the tandem master could ever recover from unstability. also the opening looked pretty positive. and the landing wasnt to nice either.
i just hope we dont have a new thread in the incident forum with something like this.
i bet bill booth and ted strong are looking at this video in shock and awe Tongue
fair play to the guy for trying but madness at the end of the day.
there is better ways to get 3some goingTongue

Spoken like a skydiver.

From a DZO's perspective it's a brilliant idea to maximize profits. Half the tandem master pay, half the rig depreciation, and 33% increase in lift capacity. What's not to like?

And a bulk discount from the funeral director.......

A cunning plan indeed.

Third video of a "trandem" that I have seen. First one in which the students were side by side.

I would guess that someone set his drogue from inside the airplane, similar to an IAD deployment.

I recall seeing a 'trandem' approx 8 years ago, where all 3 people were 'in-line', and the exit was from a hot air baloon.

Seems only fair - the poor cat's eye's aren't screened from the wind, so why should the guy's be?

Yeah I've seen a few. but not side by side. It looked to me he pitched himself, very quick on the trigger.

Yup - that's one of them. The exit and deployment were surprisingly smooth, but they did not show the "landing" in the video.

And the PAX didn't even have an altimeter. It suggests the DZ is really a tandem factory; not really interested in taking the opportunity to teach the student. Sad, really.
