I just had to steal this training photo... Can't Post

The attached photo, seen on Facebook, from the Redemption Boogie this last weekend.

The instructor is Jason Jasnos from Iowa. His comments: "Was training him to pull and had to put the ripcord in a place that would be realistic for him to expect to go for it."

I think it is a nice piece of work, not only giving your student an altimeter and training them to pull, but finding an impromptu training aid to make it more realistic.

Looks the guy had on an appropriate sized student rig and Jason was just the AAD. If the student didn't pull, Jason would get something out.Laugh

That would be a lot of fun for a tailgate exit. 'Just walk out of the back of the plane and arch'

Did they jump together? Is there video of the landing available?

I'm 1,85m (6'1") so I am usually taller than my students but it happens that they are hightowers Wink
If they do arch at exit it works from a tailgate without a flip, see pic attached. Nice student, really good body position. If they de-arch thing might become interesting Angelic
